Description

Klappentext Part of a series that pairs leading Australian thinkers and cultural figures with important themes in life, this essay explores the idea of luck and of being lucky. Analyzing and challenging Australians' fervent belief in luck, this perceptive examination investigates topics such as Australia's nickname of "The Lucky Country," its intrinsic gambling culture, corruption in business, the Australian economy, and considers the consequences when luck runs out. Zusammenfassung Australia has always prided itself on its luckiness. This book deals with this characteristic, and especially what happens when luck runs out.
