Julia Gillard wants to abolish poverty through her Ministry of Inclusion.
Ms Gillard wants to introduce programs to reduce social isolation in new housing developments in regional areas and cities, particularly on the outer fringes.
"The analysis would lead you to believe that if economic growth alone was going to fix the problems of those communities, it would be fixing them by now," Ms Gillard said.
"The truth is economic growth alone is not fixing the problems of those communities and they're getting left behind."
The economy has been growing for years, unemployment is low and there are labour shortages.Those communities she is concerned about are the same communities that have people like this.The main beneficiary of these government programs will be public servants.
