"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

easy solutions? « Previous | |Next »
July 10, 2003

There is an article in Tuesday's Australian Financial Review(subscription required, p. 55) by Robert Booth on the national electricity market. He argues that serious reform of the electricity distribution market has not even begun.

He then says that the solution to many of the problems lies with the role of the regulators. These need to be sorted out to ensure that an efficient and effective energy market delivers reasonably priced energy.

There is nothing about sustainability at all. It is not considered to be a problem.

Should we expect anything different from an independent energy consultant, who is also member of Energy Reform Task Force of the Business Council of Australia? The BCA does have a thin understanding of sustainable development.
