Product Description

The debt business is booming. Millions of Australians grapple with credit cards, mortgages and student debt repayments each day. As the result of a car crash without insurance, investigative journalist Royce Kurmelovs finds himself among them. When a debt collector knocks on his door, he embarks on a journey through the underbelly of the Australian financial system. Though friends tell him not to worry, that it's 'just money', he learns the opposite is true, our relationship with debt is a convergence of class and power, making it an urgent social justice issue for a growing number of people. Just Money is a timely and important book that reveals how years of political opportunism and rapacious business practices in the 'Lucky Country' have forged a nation that is leaving the next generation to pick up the tab.
