Rogue Corporations: Inside Australia's biggest business scandalsQuentin Beresford
Crown Resorts, the Bond Group, James Hardie, HIH Insurance, Geoffrey Edelsten's Allied Medical Group, 7-Eleven and Rio Tinto, the list goes on...
Australia has suffered from the continual sting of business scandals since corporate cowboys like Alan Bond and Christopher Skase wrought so much damage during the 1980s. Since then, hundreds of thousands of Australians have been affected, with many left traumatised when corporations collapse due to gross mismanagement and profits being put before people.
Award-winning author Quentin Beresford takes us inside corporate Australia's highest-profile scandals and the factors that drive them - the rise of celebrity CEOs, timid regulators, inept boards, the murky links between big business, governments, banks, media and lobby groups - and explores a path towards higher ethical standards from organisations. It's a wild ride into the heart of corporate Australia.
