Paul Cleary on Australia’s Mining Boom

When

In this Lunchbox/Soapbox, highly respected Australian journalist Paul Cleary expands on his polemic on the insidious effects of Australia’s mining boom.

Lunchbox/Soapbox is a simple idea: an old-fashioned Speakers’ Corner in the middle of the city, in the middle of the day.

At the Wheeler Centre we’re keen to showcase our writers as thinkers and as artists, as people with passions and peccadilloes.
