“A cabinet reshuffle provides the perfect opportunity for a prime minister to clarify the role of incoming ministers. Now that Gary Gray has been confirmed as the Minister for Resources and Energy, the big question is whether the former director of corporate affairs for Woodside Petroleum will be responsible for Australia’s natural resources or follow Martin Ferguson’s lead and act as minister for the companies that extract Australia’s resources.

There’s a big difference.”

TooMuch

Too Much is an innovative not for profit site “dedicated to the notion that our world would be considerably more caring, prosperous, and democratic if we narrowed the vast gap that divides our wealthy from everyone else.”

About the IPS:
IPS is a community of public scholars and organizers linking peace, justice, and the environment in the U.S. and globally. We work with social movements to promote true democracy and challenge concentrated wealth, corporate influence, and military power.
As Washington’s first progressive multi-issue think tank, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) has served as a policy and research resource for visionary social justice movements for over four decades — from the anti-war and civil rights movements in the 1960s to the peace and global justice movements of the last decade. Some of the greatest progressive minds of the 20th and 21st centuries have found a home at IPS, starting with the organization's founders, Richard Barnet and Marcus Raskin. IPS scholars have included such luminaries as Arthur Waskow, Gar Alperovitz, Saul Landau, Bob Moses, Rita Mae Brown, Barbara Ehrenreich, Roger Wilkins and Orlando Letelier.
