Much is made of the importance of the proper role of ‘aspirations’ in Australian political life. In particular great significance is attributed to the situation of skilled/semi-skilled blue-collar workers being able to avail themselves of opportunities both for running their own business (“being their own boss”) & securing investment properties in order to better themselves. But in a world likely to be characterized by mass unemployment, according to the apocalyptic prediction by CEDA [& others) of 40% out of work by 2025, with attendant political ramifications, such an ‘aspirational future’ is more likely to focus desperately on securing a job... any job.
