John Howard's Landslide Election Victory | CIS | Tom Switzer

Centre for Independent Studies

March, 4th 2021 marked the 25th anniversary of the Howard Coalition government’s election. In honour of the occasion, former prime minister John Howard and CIS executive director Tom Switzer sat down for a conversation about the policy successes (and failures) of his government as well as the current economic, cultural and foreign policy challenges facing Australia.In 1995, Mr. Howard had inherited a party that had chalked up its fifth election defeat, only to lead it to win four elections on the trot. From March 1996 to November 2007, his government fundamentally transformed the political landscape. It cut taxes, reformed welfare, balanced the national books, wiped out government debt, loosened the trade unions’ grip on business, and presided over the longest economic boom since the gold rushes of the 19th century.Under John Howard’s leadership, Australia led the 1999 peacekeeping effort in East Timor and was deeply involved in countering terrorism in Australia’s local neighbourhood and in farther flung areas, like the Middle East and Afghanistan.

GeoPod talks to former Prime Minister of Australia the Hon John Howard AC

GeoPod: The Geopolitics Podcast by Tenjin Consulting

This week on GeoPod, Tenjin Consulting's Alexander and Georgina Downer talk to former Australian Prime Minister the Hon John Howard AC. John Howard is Australia's second longest serving Prime Minister. Last week marked 25 years since the election of the Howard Government on 2 March 1996. The Howard Government oversaw significant changes in Australia - from responsible fiscal management, the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax, the move to a more modern workplace relations system, and the negotiation of a National Firearms Agreement in response to the Port Arthur massacre. On foreign policy and defence, the Howard Government managed a strong US alliance which met the challenges following September 11 and the Bali bombings, while Australia's defence and security personnel brought peace and independence to East Timor and delivered greater stability within our region. In this episode of GeoPod, we talk to Mr Howard about his observations of the type of people who choose a career in politics - a career he still feels is a noble profession. Labor has less MPs coming from the shop floor of trade unions, while the Liberal Party has more staffers. This isn't always a bad thing, but a mixture is important.   We also talk to Mr Howard about his views on the media and its influence on government, the impact of social media (sadly, he's not on Twitter!) and cancel culture on society. Finally, we discuss Mr Howard's views on the new Biden Administration and the Australian Government's handling of its bilateral relationship with China.
