The Sweet Spot

The Sweet Spot

Peter Hartcher, Black Inc.

This book is timely and well written.

It has been described as a tour through Australian politics and history. It tells the wonderfully entertaining story of how Australia started out as a penal colony, avoided the traps so many others didn’t, including avoiding the worst of the global financial crisis, and ended up being the envy of the world.

Hartcher strongly argues the role of true leadership and daring policies.

However, the book doesn’t address the “how we could now throw it all away” in enough detail. The story is much more about the economic history that made this country a great place to live in. And then an invitation to think about how we could keep doing this in future.
