Economic Reform Australia 

working for a just and
sustainable society

Economic Reform Australia exists to promote a critical approach to economic thinking, commonly referred to as heterodox economics.
This challenge to orthodox economic thinking is prompted by the manifest failure of mainstream economic theory to support widespread social and environmental benefits for society. The wealth gap continues to expand, the natural environment continues to be degraded and social cohesion and well-being undermined.

The limitations of an economic paradigm which promotes the “free market” as arbiter of social good is plain for all to see.

Heterodox economics covers a broad spectrum of insights and perspectives. Common to most however is a searing critique of the mainstream doctrine, often referred to as neoliberalism which has dominated economic and political discourse for over 40 years. Today it stands increasingly condemned by the dire consequences now confronting society and the natural environment.
