Unfinished Business: Paul Keating's Interrupted Revolution, David Love
12 David Love Unfinished Business: Paul Keating's Interrupted Revolution
Scribe 235211 Melbourne 2008 1921372192 / 9781921372193 Softcover Very Good Condition In the early 1980s, Paul Keating set out to reinvent the Australian economy. He floated the Australian dollar, liberated banking and finance from its regulatory shackles, and - most significantly - introduced a universal superannuation scheme. The results were astounding growth in the value of our national economy and in the personal wealth of ordinary Australians. Keating's revolution was based on his insight that, by encouraging all of us to save for retirement, a huge pool of investment capital would be created that would help enrich the nation. But the fulfilment of his vision was denied by his political opponents after the Australian people voted Keating out in 1996. In this book, David Love, a veteran economic and financial observer, explores the story of Keating's revolution - a story that has never before been fully told - and sounds a timely warning that the failure to finish the job Keating started has left our new-found prosperity vulnerable, particularly in the current climate of international economic uncertainty. The revolution, it turns out, is at least as relevant to the future as it has been to the past 265 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Political Animal: The Making of Tony Abbott, David Marr
13 David Marr Political Animal: The Making of Tony Abbott
Black Inc 243936 Australia 2013 1863955984 / 9781863955980 Softcover Very Good Condition Tony Abbott is poised to become the nation's next prime minister and, more than ever, Australian's are asking- what kind of man is he and how might he run the country? David Marr's Political Animal, with its revelation of 'the punch,' triggered intense scrutiny of Abbott's character in 2012. Now this expanded and updated edition of Marr's dramatic portrait gives the clearest picture yet of Abbott the man and politician. Marr shows him thriving on chaos and conflict. Part fighter and part charmer, Abbott is deeply religious and deeply political. What happens when his values clash with his absolute determination to win? That is the great puzzle of a career than began as a wild university politician in the 1970s and seem destined to end in the Lodge. 'David Marr is as brilliant a biographer and journalist as this country has produced.' Peter Craven, Spectator Australia 200 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Recollections Of A Bleeding Heart: A Portrait of Paul Keating PM, Don Watson
14 Don Watson Recollections Of A Bleeding Heart: A Portrait of Paul Keating PM
A Knopf Book 241998 USA 2002 First Edition 0091835178 / 9780091835170 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good BLEEDING HEART: noun, derisory. One of liberal or social democratic views. One who believes there is such a thing as a society. Not an economic rationalist, point head or econocrat. 'There are no bigger dreamers than in our office. It's a mixture of econocrats and bleeding hearts.' PM PAUL KEATING, MARCH 1993 If he had never become Prime Minister Paul Keating's place in Australian history would still have been assured. He was the Treasurer who deregulated the economy; the weaver of Labor's modern story; its heavy weapon in the parliament. He was also the great enigma - a self-educated boy from Sydney's working class and a defining element of the head-kicking Labor right who loved Paris, Mahler and Second Empire clocks. Paul Keating did become Prime Minister. In December 1991 he wrested it from Bob Hawke and the bruises from that struggle were part of the baggage he brought to the job: the other parts included the worst recession in 60 years and an electorate determined to make him pay for it. Keating defied the odds and won the 1993 election, and in his four years as Prime Minister set Australia on a new course - towards engagement with Asia, a republic, reconciliation, a social democracy built on a modern export-based economy and sophisticated public systems of education and training, health and social security. Widely regarded as a quintessential economic rationalist, Keating's record clearly shows that his vision was infinitely broader and more complex. Don Watson was employed as Keating's speechwriter. Though a 'bleeding heart' liberal trained in history rather than economics, he became an advisor and friend to Keating. RECOLLECTIONS OF A BLEEDING HEART - based on notes Watson kept through the four turbulent and exhausting years of Keating's Prime Ministership - is a frank, sympathetic and engrossing portrait of this brilliant and perplexing man, and a unique reflection on modern politics. Heavy tanning to outer page edges, 756 pages. Age tanning to pages. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos.
