A surprise hit, Tasmania – The Tipping Point? has been flying off the shelves in bookshops all over the country.
Despite Lonely Planet listing Hobart as one of the top ten cities to visit in 2013, CommSec’s new State of the States report reveals Tasmania remains at the bottom of the Australian economic performance table.
The challenges it now faces are relevant to the whole nation. Why Tasmania still underperforms on so many fronts, and what might be done to change this, are important questions — not just for Tasmanians, but also for the nation as a whole. As a microcosm of non-metropolitan regions of Australia, it may well represent Australia’s future.
Tasmania – the Tipping Point? asks thinkers and doers from Tasmania and beyond – including members of its extensive diaspora – to examine whether Tasmania has reached a ‘tipping point’.
