Description - Weighing Up Australian Values by Brian Howe

This book emphasises the importance of `time sovereignty' - that is the capacity of people to bank time so that they can vary their work commitments in the light of caring responsibilities, their need for further education and training or because they may at certain periods be carrying more community leadership responsibility. It is a book of big ideas such as the need for `learning accounts', as well as new institutional arrangements that help people to manage difficult transitions in life.
