Dick Bryan & Mike Rafferty - Risking Together - Friday 29th June

Risking Together: How Finance is Dominating Everyday Life in Australia

To be launched by Prof. Lisa Adkins (University of Sydney) and Stephen Long (4 Corners)

Australia is in the midst of a major social and economic experiment that centres on financial risks being shifted on to ordinary people. We are being asked to manage ourselves as if we are businesses, and these businesses are being squeezed tighter and tighter.
Households are taking on more risk and financial stress, implicitly accepting demands that they be stable, secure payers. What is driving this, and how might we resist it?

Risking Together: How Finance is Dominating Everyday Life in Australia explains what is systematic about this risk-shifting onto households, explores the frontier of financialised profit making, and includes suggestions on pushing back.  BUY THE BOOK
