The Hon Dr Gary Johns served in the House of Representatives from 1987-1996, was Special Minister of State and Assistant Minister for Industrial Relations from 1993-1996 and was an Associate Commissioner of the Commonwealth Productivity Commission 2002-2004. He was for 10 years Senior Fellow at the Institute of Public Affairs and a senior consultant with ACIL Tasman economic consultants from 2006-2009. In 2009 he was appointed Associate Professor of Public Policy at the Australian Catholic University’s Public Policy Institute. In 2012 he was appointed visiting fellow at QUT Business School.
Gary Johns will argue the case for his book “No Contraception No Dole: Tackling intergenerational
welfare”. It has created considerable controversy amongst the chattering classes and will be an
opportunity for those who attend to discuss the pros and cons with the author.
The Australian Adam Smith Club is hosting a series of dinner meetings with the decisions and debates central to the 2016 election.
We hope to see you at our Meetings – good speakers, good food and a lively question time are our promise.
