Product description

Product Description

James is our most mundane villain. His victim is Bruce, our typical Aussie, who bleeds from the hip pocket because of James’ actions. Game of Mates tells a tale of economic theft across major sectors of Australia’s economy, showing how James and his group of well-connected Mates siphon off billions from the economy to line their own pockets. In property, mining, transport, banking, superannuation, and many more sectors, James and his Mates cooperate to steal huge chunks of the economic pie for themselves. If you want to know how much this costs the nation, how it is done, and what we can do about it, Game of Mates is the book for you.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an important eye-opener to all voting public. I always believed that I am well informed about public decision making, following democratically established principles. I was wrong! The level of systematic high-level corruption in Australia, that the book exposes, truly surprised me. This book should be compulsory reading for all university students, and a perquisite for citizenship to ensure that we all practice our democratic rights and obligations.
The book is written in a very accessible style, which makes it a bit verbose, but it can be read quickly and all claims are fully referenced and can be followed up in credible sources. The authors have done a great social service by writing this book.

This book uncovers factual evidence of what concerned members of the public have always suspected , that "Who you know" makes a difference. It lifts the curtain on the complexities of decision making of government at all levels and shows how it is well connected individuals and companies that have access to favorable decisions, all to the detriment of your average aussie.

Read between the lines like never before as the Game of Mates details what we all intrinsically feel. Democracy is a sour joke. Insiders make the easy money whilst we are taxed for working. The joke is that this is only possible because of our barrier to understanding economics. The book makes this robbery a real page turner, breaking down complex issues for the everyday reader.
