Last week I went to the ACL's Strong Economy, Strong Communities breakfast.  Two talks in particular are worth you taking the time to watch.

The first was by Professor Jonathan West. He spoke about how as a community we're so preoccupied by self interest that we can never take the larger view.  His story in this video about how the wine industry in Tassie opposed the expansion of the wine industry is mind boggling!

The second talk of note was that by Professor Ian Harper.  He spoke again about the need for things like trust and fairness as the basic building blocks to a strong community and also a strong economy.

They aren't long talks, but they will be stimulating!  If you want more information about the Tasmanian Election, and who to vote for, head on over to the Tas Votes website.
