How to solve the world’s trickiest political problems?

In Reframe, Eric Knight explains how a change of focus can reveal a solution that was lying just outside your frame of vision. From terrorism to global warming, from border security to high finance, he brings a new perspective that is both exhilarating and useful.

Why can’t we eliminate terrorism by killing terrorists?

Why can’t we learn anything about climate change by talking about the weather?

Why can’t we resolve immigration tensions by building higher fences?

And what do fishermen in Turkey have to teach us about international relations?

This is an optimistic, lucid and original book by a brilliant young Australian thinker.

“An original and vital contribution to understanding politics” – Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist

“This is one of those books that’s exciting if you agree with it, but even more exciting if you don’t. Eric Knight is provoking us to consider not just what we think, but how we think.” – Waleed Aly

“Eric Knight asks us to apply a different lens when looking at some of our trickiest problems. And by doing so we do indeed find new solutions. Great insight and intriguing reading.” – Hans-Paul Bürkner, President and CEO, Boston Consulting Group

Eric Knight is the author of Reframe: How to solve the world’s trickiest problems. A former Rhodes scholar, he has worked as an economics consultant to the OECD, the UN and the World Bank and he has written for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Drum, The Spectator and The Monthly.
