About

The Melbourne Business School is one of the leading providers of management education in the Asia-Paci\ufb01c. The Centre for Ideas and the Economy (or CITE) is a newly-created research centre residing within MBS. It is devoted to the creation and dissemination of academically evaluated, rigorous and practical policy ideas for application in the public and business spheres. This IdeaPITCH is one of a series of publications from the CITE. An IdeaPITCH is a vehicle by which academic researchers can place into the public domain policy ideas that have their genesis in academic research but have yet to be explored in broad detail. The purpose of an IdeaPITCH is to generate interest in such exploration by governments and others in the community. Comments are welcome on the proposal put forward in this report.
