About the Author

Dick Bryan is professor emeritus of political economy at the University of Sydney.
Michael Rafferty is an associate professor of international business at RMIT. He was an ARC Future Fellow at the University of Sydney from 2012 - 2016.


'Dick Bryan and Michael Rafferty offer a provocative caveat in Risking Together, arguing that wealth and income inequality do not fully, or even best, explain the financial distress of middle class Australians ... It is therefore an invaluable addition to the cultural economy canon, an introduction suitable for both undergraduate university students and the workers, consumers and citizens whose story it tells.'

-- Carolyn Hardin * Journal of Cultural Economy *
