Book Talk Thursday 16th March 6pm
A jaw-dropping account of how one company came to own every poker machine in the state of Tasmania – and the cost to democracy, the public purse and problem gamblers and their families. From the toppling of a premier, to David Walsh, the man behind MONA, taking an eccentric stand against pokie machines and the political status quo.
is a story of broken politics and back-room deals and is a meticulous, compelling case study in governance failure, which has implications for pokies reform throughout Australia.
