Evidence based policy in Oz

The volume containing the paper I wrote based on my remarks at the conference on Evidence Based Policy organized by Australia's Productivity Commission is now available on-line. My piece, which is an update of an older paper that my friend Arthur Sweetman and I prepared for an HRSDC conference many years ago, is Chapter 4, and is entitled "Putting the Evidence in Evidence-Based Policy".

The conference itself was great fun, and I was impressed with the general caliber of both the political and academic participants.
