Description

The debt business is booming. Millions of Australians grapple with credit cards, mortgages and student debt repayments each day. As the result of a car crash without insurance, investigative journalist Royce Kurmelovs finds himself among them.


When a debt collector knocks on his door, he embarks on a journey through the underbelly of the Australian financial system. Though friends tell him not to worry, that it's 'just money', he learns the opposite is true- our relationship with debt is a convergence of class and power, making it an urgent social justice issue for a growing number of people.

Just Money is a timely and important book that reveals how years of political opportunism and rapacious business practices in the 'Lucky Country' have forged a nation that is leaving the next generation to pick up the tab.
