Competition in Climate Science

IPA REVIEW ARTICLE | Jennifer Marohasy

The classical liberal, like the ordinary Australian, has a general aversion to revolutionary change. This is justified in the spheres of politics and economics. When it comes to science, however, history shows that it is principally through...

Climate Change - In Search of a Signal

IPA REVIEW ARTICLE | Stewart Franks

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis. Often the occurrence of a drought or flood is sufficient to generate a whole range of expert speculation...

A Conservative Titan

IPA REVIEW ARTICLE | Richard Allsop

British Conservative MP Jesse Norman has written an excellent book about Edmund Burke. It is a book in two parts, the first a reasonably straightforward biography of the subject and the second an analysis of his ideas, with a diversion into...

The true costs of national debt

IPA REVIEW ARTICLE | Mikayla Novak

Among the estimated 3.5 billion websites around the world, there is one that is almost guaranteed to keep adults lying awake at night and force horrified children to run for cover. It is the global public sector debt clock website maintained by...

All roads lead to Canberra
