Upcoming event on Steel on Steel – inside story of privatisation of QR’s freight arm

In a post earlier this year, I discussed Stephen Baines’s excellent insider’s account of the privatisation of Queensland Rail’s freight arm, Steel on Steel. Not coincidentally, the Economic Society of Australia’s Queensland branch, of which I’m Deputy Secretary, has arranged for Stephen (photo below) to give a presentation on his new book at a lunchtime seminar on Wednesday 18 March. The event is to be held at Morgans on Level 29 of the Riverside Centre, Eagle St, Brisbane. You can find further details at ESA Qld’s website: Sandwich lunch featuring Stephen Baines. If you would like to do some pre-reading for the seminar, I would encourage you to purchase a copy of Steel on Steel from UQ Press.
