Covering topics and answering questions such as Have Baby Boomers been forced back to work since the global financial crisis? Will precommitment cards for poker machines coerce the addicted gambler to think before he or she acts? and Is airport security a waste of time and money? with more than simply a series of numbers and facts, this book is informative, provocative, funny, and even moving. A first edition of a new annual anthology, this account not only showcases the best of Australian business writing, but also demonstrates just how good—and how important—writing about business can be.
