This paper explores the idea that audience interaction in improvised performance can challenge and, in turn, change the way that audience members understand relationships and structures in society. I propose that it is the visceral experience of simulated social relations during a performance that facilitates this reframing in the audience. This concept is examined with regards to Digital Monkeys, an internet-based, audience-interactive improvisation that aims to achieve this very goal. Specifically, Digital Monkeys aims to...

This Diary summarises the legislative and administrative changes made in the social policy field during 1987 and 1988 by the Commonwealth government. The Diary provides a ready reference for research workers, and can also be used as a succinct and factual account of policy during the years covered. For the first time, education policies are covered by the Diary. This issue also sees the separation of community services from social security into a separate new...

Redistribution by the State in Austria

Alois Guger
Although the size of the public sector is large in Austria, its redistributive impact from high to low income classes is limited: on the revenue side, indirect taxation is high and, on the expenditure side, the principle of horizontal equity is prevalent. In Austria, income and property taxation is low and only moderately progressive due to a number of tax concessions which lower the tax rate for high incomes substantially. Indirect taxes and social security...

A Perennial problem, Employment, Joblessness and Poverty

Peter Saunders
The idea that unemployment is the principal cause of poverty among those of workforce age has been a central finding of poverty research. The precise nature of this key relationship has changed along with changes in the labour market, but unemployment remains a perennial cause of poverty among the working-age population. This paper, written in appreciation of the contribution made by Professor Peter Sheehan to work in the area, examines the links that exist between...

Towards a Credible Poverty Framework: From Income Poverty to Deprivation

Peter Saunders
There have always been differences of view on what poverty means in conceptual terms, and even greater differences on how to measure it. These differences span a broad spectrum of normative and ideological positions and raise a number of technical issues surrounding the statistical measurement of poverty. This paper explains the role of poverty research and the value of a poverty line, while acknowledging that limitations exist with the current instruments. It argues that any...

Selectivity and Targeting in Income Support: The Australian Experience

Peter Saunders
The Australian income support system is often characterised as one of the most selective in the Western industrialised world. This paper examines the sense in which the Australian system is selective, and discusses the distinction between selectivity and targeting in income support provisions. The paper contrasts developments in social security outlays and recipient numbers over the last two decades with those occurring since the election of the Hawke Government in 1983 in order that the...

Economic Inequality in Australia Volume 2: Some Factors Causing Inequality

Phil Raskall & Peter Saunders
The idea that a Study of Social and Economic Inequalities (SSEI) should be undertaken in Australia was first proposed in 1988 by the then Minister for Social Security, Brian Howe. The main focus of the Study is to shed new light on various dimensions of inequality in Australia - both economic and social - and to investigate the factors causing them. The research involves the analysis of existing data rather than the collection of new...
