The Money Men

Australia's Twelve Most Notable Treasurers

Chris Bowen
Former Treasurer Chris Bowen provides a rare insight into Australia's most important economic office through interviews with former Treasurers and senior bureaucrats
How much do we know about the second most important office in the nation? Who was Australia's first treasurer? Who resigned because of a relationship breakdown with the PM? And who did Frank Hardy base his character Ted Thurgood in Power without Glory on?

The Money Men is the first in-depth look at the twelve most notable and interesting men to have held the office of Treasurer of Australia. Former Treasurer Chris Bowen brings a unique insider perspective to the lessons learned from the successes and failures of those who went before him.

Who does Chris Bowen think has been Australia's most exceptional Treasurer? With revealing interviews of the five last treasurers, The Money Men dares to answer that question.

We know too little about our treasurers and we know too little about the job. Bowen's book fills a gap. It's fun to browse, and is set to become an essential reference work.”
