South Australia: State of Transformation

John Spoehr

South Australia: State of Transformation
South Australia - and the world - is entering a time of transformational change: social, economic, industrial and environmental. As a new government takes the reins, it has the power to shape the future of our state and its citizens at a crucial moment.

The automotive industry has closed, but maritime shipbuilding projects are booming. Automation and artificial intelligence technologies are on the rise - and with them, both fears of jobs lost and the promise of increased productivity and wellbeing. Which way will we go?

In this insightful collection of essays, some of South Australia's leading policy thinkers consider our future in the context of jobs, our economy and its drivers, industrial relations, law and order, the environment, education, health (including ageing and aged care) and more.

Professor John Spoehr is Pro-Vice Chancellor Research Impact at Flinders University where he is also Director of the Australian Industrial Transformation Institute. He is the editor of four editions of State of South Australia and co-editor of The Engaging State: South Australia's engagement with the Asia Pacific region with Purnendra Jain, both published by Wakefield Press. His current research focuses on industrial diversification, technology and the future of industry and work.
