James is our most mundane villain. His victim is Bruce, our typical Aussie, who bleeds from the hip pocket because of James’ actions. Game of Mates tells a tale of economic theft across major sectors of Australia’s economy, showing how James and his group of well-connected Mates siphon off billions from the economy to line their own pockets. In property, mining, transport, banking, superannuation, and many more sectors, James and his Mates cooperate to steal huge chunks of the economic pie for themselves. If you want to know how much this costs the nation, how it is done, and what we can do about it, Game of Mates is the book for you.

How the elite are ripping off Australia big-time - shocking!


This book will blow your socks off! I have bought copies for all my friends and recommended it to everyone I know who is even vaguely interested in why things seem to be going wrong right now. Dr Cameron Murray did 5 years of research for his PhD, and this book is the distillation of the systemic corruption permeating Australia that he unearthed. It is written in terms of the elite, whom he calls "James", and the rest of us poor suckers, whom he calls "Bruce". James rips off Bruce in a systematic way in all spheres of life, and gets away with it because it is "legal", but only just. Ethics and morals go out the window when you are admitted to the "Game of Mates" - they are the lucky "Jameses" who attend the right schools and universities, and know the right people. He concludes that HALF the wealth of Australia is being siphoned off to the elite and their Mates, in a convoluted system of perks, favours, privatisations, "grey gifts", spot rezonings, backhanders, and near-fraud. He confirms all those vague feelings that you have of being ripped off by big business and governments in cold hard facts and figures, and reveals the incredible width and depth of the corruption in Australia in the "Game of Mates". To see how this is possible in a "democracy", this is a MUST-READ!!!
