The case for a government-owned nuclear reactor fleet

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle


Here I outline the merits of a government-owned and built fleet of nuclear reactors for Australia.

I have been highly critical of government control of industry in the past, especially when it comes to networked infrastructure such as telecommunications, roads, and energy assets. Key to my argument is that the purpose of government is to protect the public interest, not to provide goods and services that are innovative and meet the needs of consumers.
