Making Australia Great (DVD)

George Megalogenis

Australia is the economic envy of the world. The only developed nation to avoid recession in the great crash of 2008. This three part series asks an important question. Having avoided the world’s greatest economic disaster in almost a century, what can Australia do to keep its unique winning streak on track?

Author and journalist George Megalogenis takes us on a unique TV journey to find out. On his investigation of our past present and future, he enlists the support of every former PM and treasurer from 2013 back to the 1970s. Together they help George uncover how we managed to dodge the GFC bullet by going back in time not merely to the last 50 years, but beyond to the 19th century. The only other period when Australia was top of the economic ladder.

George discovers a dramatic and counter-intuitive story and a compelling case that our economic strength is way more interesting and complex than simply being the result of Australia being a mineral rich continent on China’s doorstep. We made our own luck through decades of far sighted and challenging reform, and learning from the painful mistakes we made along the way.

George charts this story of how the old closed economy of the first 60 years of the 20th Century, was transformed after the failures of the 1970s, and how that reform was not without it’s painful impacts.
