“Politics is not a horse race, but if you’re anything like me and you’re only just recovering from the ‘mule-trading’ vibe of election 2010, More Than Luck is a brilliant place to restore your faith. What sweet relief to find a collection of words, sentences, pages, chapters, a whole book that reminds us of the possibility these current times offer us.”
The Centre for Policy Development has published a book of policy ideas for the newly-elected Labor minority Government. The book has contributions from CPD fellows and other writers and researchers, capturing their ambitious, progressive ideas – and the evidence that backs them.

Edited by Mark Davis (author of Land of Plenty) and CPD Executive Director Miriam Lyons, More Than Luck is both a collection of ideas for citizens who want real change and a to-do list for politicians looking to base public policies on the kind of future Australians really want. The book shows what’s needed to share this country’s good luck amongst all Australians – now and in the future. We asked our authors to come up with creative, ambitious and achievable ideas for change. The result is a mix of easy wins that are ready to be implemented and some big, bold nation building ideas that may require a bit more backbone on the part of our political leaders.
