Megalogenis, George

The Australian Moment: How We Were Made for These Times, Viking, Melbourne, Vic., 2013

[The author] examines how we developed from a closed economy racked by the oil shocks, toughed it out during the sometimes devastating growing pains of deregulation, and survived the Asian financial crisis, the dotcom tech wreck and the GFC to become the last developed nation standing in the 2000s. As a result, whatever happens next, we’re as well positioned as any to survive the ongoing rumblings of the Great Recession. (blurb)

The book covers forty years of our economic and political history. A review by Dennis Altman is here and another one by Derek Parker is here and the author talks about the book here.
