11:45 - EVENT - Lunch with Nick Cater: The Lucky Culture : Enjoy lunch with author Nick Cater as he discusses The Lucky Culture and the rise of an Australian ruling class. Website | More Information
Countries don’t get lucky; people do.

The Lucky Culture tells the story of Australian exceptionalism - the unique national quality that within 200 years of settlement transformed a raw, unbroken continent into the great civilisation of the south.

In the beginning, Australians were driven by the spirit of progress and united by the faith that human wit and energy could overcome any obstacle. They were ingenious, hardworking and inventive.

Today, however, Australia has a new class of people, a self-appointed elite, who consider themselves to be smarter, more sophisticated and better mannered than the rest. This is what Cater calls the new ‘ruling class’ - a group of people who are changing Australia, irrevocably, and not for the better. Cater fears that what is happening in Australia is moving us away from our original notion of who Australians are - egalitarian, innovative, fearless and spirited – instead creating a more conflicted, scared and divided nation.

Almost half a century after Donald Horne first tried to define ‘The Lucky Country’ in his seminal book, Nick Cater looks at the country that Australia has become. He argues strongly for Australians to resist the ascendency of this emerging class and to return to our original, best selves, aspiring to the principles of fairness, egalitarianism and enterprise that first defined us.

With a background in sociology, 30 years experience in journalism and a detached eye for detail, no one is better placed than Cater to help Australians understand.

Price: Members / Guests $59 Price includes a two-course lunch with selected wines, and presentation by Nick Cater on ‘The Lucky Culture’.

Held in conjunction with UWA Extension.

ACADEMIC JOURNALS Journal of Business & Retail Management Research (JBRMR) JBRMR is a scholar and referred journal that provides as authoritative source of information for scholars, academics and professionals in the fields of business and retail management. For further information please visit at www.jbrmr.com

The International Journal of Business and Economic Development (IJBED) IJBED`s mission is to promote and publish research inquiring into the behaviour of business , their ways of upgrading themselves in response to changes in the environment and the way the policy framework is being developed to encourage them to expand in a rational manner.

BOOK PUBLICATION Globalisation Revisited: A Global Phenomenon under the Microscope Globalisation has become one of the watchwords of the latter Twentieth and early Twentieth First century. Whilst globalisation is written and talked about in a general sense this book seeks to take stock and reflect on the `era of globalisation’ through a series of regional case studies aimed at elucidating examples of globalisation in action. The book will begin with an attempt to define ‘globalisation’ as well as to give a brief history of the theoretical nature of globalisation along with schools of thought about the nature and purpose of the topic. It will also present a brief explanation of how globalisation itself has inadvertently assisted those individuals and organisations who are committed to containing or curtailing that which they refer to as globalisation.

ABRM announces a Call for Papers for the publication of a book entitled Globalisation Revisited: A global phenomenon under the microscope to be edited by Professor P.R.Banerjee and Dr P.R.Datta. Interested authors are invited to contribute chapter(s) in the book. For further details please click here

The group sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6pm-8pm. The fee is $30 per session for a total of $300 (or $225 if paid in total in the first week; i.e. a 25% saving). The initial assessment and follow-up session will also cost $30 each.
