Ann Pettifor gave a video address to participants at the 'CrunchTime: Australia's Policy Future' conference held in Sydney on 22nd and 23rd April 2009. This is an edited version of the video. The full version (40 minutes) is also available on this site. In this video Ann looks at the catalysts for the current global economic crisis and the lessons we can learn from our economic history. As the world faces climate change, peak oil and the economic crisis, Ann explains how, by drawing together the often disparate strands of the business community, environmentalists and the union movement we can create a pathway to a more secure and equitable future.
