In honour of Australia’s most eminent living economist, this event will see the launch of Lucky Boy in the Lucky Country: The Autobiography of Max Corden, Economist, published by Palgrave Macmillan (UK).
“In this fascinating book Max tells of his entire life journey, starting with Breslau, the arrival of the Nazis in 1933 and his father’s imprisonment in Buchenwald, to the family’s very lucky escape to England and then Australia. Max goes on to explain how he became who he is – an Australian and a great economist.”
From the Introduction by Martin Wolf of the Financial Times.
The book will be launched by Professor Ross Garnaut and Dr Nicholas Gruen.
