About the Book

Examining everything from Robodebt to rising house prices, the financial services royal commission to the impacts of COVID-19, Just Money by Royce Kurmelovs is a timely and important book that reveals how years of political opportunism and rapacious business practices have led to the ‘Lucky Country’ becoming one of the most indebted in the world.

The debt business is booming. Millions of Australians grapple with credit cards, mortgages, and student debt repayments each day. As a result of a car crash without insurance, investigative journalist Royce Kurmelovs found himself among them. When a debt collector knocked on his door, he embarked on a journey through the underbelly of the Australian financial system.

"An extraordinary work that burrows below the surface of a common Australian myth. Kurmelovs furnishes us with a detailed, sobering and sometimes darkly comic account of a financial game that has been rigged against us." – Rick Morton, author of One Hundred Years of Dirt.

"Examines how Australia became the lay-by nation, revealing how we fell in love with debt and exposing those who work in the shadows to ensure we stay there." - Brigid Delaney, author of Wellmania.
