dc.description.abstract The main aim of the report is to emphasise the need for strategic visions for Australia to embrace and incorporate a social dimension if they are to be both balanced and relevant. It argues that economic progress does not occur in a social vacuum and focuses on the longer-term role of social goals and policies in the context of a re-invigorated and vibrant economy. Economic performance is important in determining the material standards which the population is able to enjoy, but many social goals are achievable in their own terms, irrespective of economic constraints. Others will assist, not impede, economic progress. Social policy, like all areas of government policy, is a means toward an end, and the ultimate objective of all social policies is the achievement, or at least the enhancement, of social justice. A balanced approach to development must thus combine economic progress with social justice, as must any future vision for national performance. en_US
