Cancelled orders for Australian coal and what happens when home becomes a workplace?
29 min
Australia sells a lot of coal to China. Both kinds – the one for making electricity and the one for making steel. But it looks as if we won’t be selling any more this year. So what is going on? Plus, the evolving implications of so many of us working from home and today’s unemployment figures.

The wellbeing economy - a glimpse of the good life
Rather than returning to the status quo, many are calling for a change in thinking (and in policy) as societies around the world grapple with the coronavirus crisis. One such advocate for change is global development expert David Hulme, who joins Sharon Bessell and Arnagretta Hunter for a fascinating discussion on the wellbeing economy in this instalment in our special mini-series.  Why doesn’t economic growth necessarily lead to increased development? What impact is the COVID-19 crisis having on the world’s most vulnerable communities? And how can societies in developed and developing nations recover from COVID-19 and build a more equitable future with wellbeing at the core of policy decisions? On the fourth episode of our special Policy Forum Pod mini-series on the wellbeing economy, Professor Sharon Bessell and Dr Arnagretta Hunter discuss development in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis with Professor David Hulme, Executive Director of the Global Development Institute. David Hulme is Professor of Development Studies at the University of Manchester where he is Executive Director of the Global Development Institute and CEO of the Effective States and Inclusive Development Research Centre. Sharon Bessell is Professor of Public Policy and Director of Gender Equity and Diversity at Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU. Arnagretta Hunter is a cardiologist, physician, and a Senior Clinical Lecturer for ANU Medical School.
