On ‘Making Australia Slightly Better than Average Again’ … With humour and insight, Mark Swivel skewers our political life: the dominance of corporatism and consumerism and the abandonment of the public sphere. Our politicians are so enthralled by vested interests, so absorbed in their own ambition they are unable to govern in Australia’s long-term interest. Swivel rightly argues we all have a part to play in rebuilding and sustaining our Common Wealth.

On ‘Making Australia Slightly Better than Average Again’ … “Disruption is everywhere except politics. Let’s change that.” This is Mark Swivel’s message to all Australians in this immensely readable, very funny, yet insightful book. Read it and be inspired. What The Barefoot Investor did for personal finance, Swivel does for politics.
