ethical Australia

An Ethical Australia?

28 October, 2020

This episode of the ABC’s Q+A looks at accountability, ethics and leadership in the time of the pandemic, with panelists Ken Henry, Dave Sharma, Tanya Plibersek, Simon Longstaff and Dani Larkin.

In these challenging times, who holds the powerful to account? Are the standards of our political leaders slipping as we grapple with the COVID crisis? 

With public trust in our politicians and institutions like the banks at an all-time low, how do we achieve a more ethical Australia? Could we embed ethics into all levels of society? What are the principles you try to live by, and do you see them reflected in national institutions?

The questions posed to the panelists cover political truth and transparency (00:42), executive greed (14:42), politicians living in glass houses (22:33), Victorian lockdowns (40:28), phones in parliament (50:01), bank reform (56:06) and an indigenous voice to parliament (1:04:08).
