    The topic, New Directions in an Uncertain World, is a very timely one. We are living in a time where the pace and scale of change is utterly unprecedented throughout all of human history.

    Paul Kelly: Thank you very much, Prime Minister. You’re an optimist and that was an optimistic speech. We know in an age of disruption and great technological change that jobs are being destroyed and new jobs are being created - it’s one of the arguments you’ve just made. But there’s a lot of analysis which suggests that in terms of the new jobs being created they tend to fall - in simplified terms - into two categories: quality jobs at the high end that are well paid, and other jobs that are low paid jobs, perhaps in the services sector, perhaps casual employment.
