Main Description
An account of twenty years in politics by Peter Walsh, a former Labor finance minister. Describes his close involvement with all aspects of economic policy, ranging from deregulation of our financial system, to the relentless cutting of government expenditure. In plain terms he describes the discovery that the economic experts did not know it all and tells how some opportunities to make lasting changes to our economy were seized, while others were tragically missed. He also comments frankly on all aspects of economic policy from the Whitlam years through to the Keating years. Includes an index.
