This recent article by Peter Kirkwood outlining an interview with Uniting Church minister and Director of UnitingJustice Australia Elenie Poulos, contains two short videos of the interview in which Ms Poulos presents some thought-provoking ideas about neoliberal values, and whether they are benefitting or harming the “public good” of our society.

Eureka Street is ALWAYS worth a look!
