General Note "Poverty is the enemy of our collective happiness. That is why every Cabinet member and parliamentarian in every Australian government should read this book." -- Marcia Langton, Cover.
Summary Note Birth is a throw of the dice. The consequences last a lifetime.We like to think of Australia as the land of the 'fair go', a land of choice and equal opportunity. But behind the facade of meritocracy lies an uncomfortable truth: much of your life is already decided by the lottery of where you are born and who you are born to. Entrenched inter-generational poverty, like the property of the wealthy, can be handed down from parent to child.With one in eight adults and one in six children living below the poverty line in Australia, Glyn Davis asks the question: If life is a game of chance, what responsibility do those who are given a head start have to look after those less fortunate?
