Patron’s address by Peter Reith
Following the Deakin Lecture
19 May 2010
Melbourne University

Reflections at dinner after the 42nd Deakin Lecture 2010 delivered by Greg Sheridan on the subject
The death of multilateralism and the crisis of global governance.

In last year’s address David Kemp said

“in the course of trying to implement liberal values an enormous amount has been learnt over the years”

I share that view particularly in regards to economic management. It may be that we have a lot still to learn but from my experience in Australia and in Europe I believe that we can be confident that our society has a lot of knowledge on how to run a modern economy.
