Australia was the only rich country not to have gone into recession during the GFC. Our standard of living is one of the highest in the world, and we're a multicultural mix of talented migrants from all over the world. We've been here before: at the end of the goldrush in the 1850s, Australians had the highest standard of living on earth. And we lost our nerve; we shut the doors to immigration, tried to hoard what we had and entered almost a hundred years of decline. Our second chance is now; will we use it or lose it?
Crunching numbers and weaving history into a riveting, rollicking tale, George Megalogenis brilliantly chronicles the waves of immigration from the First Fleet onwards and uses his unique abilities in decoding economics and demography to advance this new insight into our history, and our future.
