John Roskam, executive director of a right-wing, corporate funded think tank, obviously did not get an invite:
The problem with Labor's summit is that 95% of the participants will be in enthusiastic agreement that the Rudd Government is good, that the Howard government was bad, and that the solution to any problem is higher taxes and more government spending.

The Australia 2020 Summit is an exercise in pure and simple politics. The summit will co-opt the country's elite into endorsing the Rudd Government's policies, and in the process the Howard government will be airbrushed from history.
Sounds good to me.

As long as the "higher taxes" are for rich bastards, like those who fund Roskam's think-tank.
