It's the Government, Stupid

How Governments Blame Citizens for Their Own Policies

Keith Dowding (Australian National University)

ISBN: 9781529206395
Published: September 2020

Price: $44.99

Condition: New

Governments have developed a convenient habit of blaming social problems on their citizens, placing too much emphasis on personal responsibility and pursuing policies to 'nudge' their citizens to better behaviour.

Dowding shows that, in fact, responsibility for many of our biggest social crises - including obesity, gun crime, homelessness, drug addiction and problem gambling - should be laid at the feet of politicians.

He argues for a radical shift, encouraging us to stop scapegoating fellow citizens. He calls instead for us to demand more from our governments, who have the real power and responsibility to alleviate problems and bring about lasting change.
