About the Book
What went wrong?
Rainer Breit is a graduate Civil Engineer from Melbourne University with an MBA qualification from Columbia University, New York. Through a diverse range of careers spanning music; civil engineering; corporate management; chocolate manufacture; fish farming; architecture; original equipment manufacture and winemaking, he has always been perplexed by the absurdity of our hierarchical work systems and the extremes of manipulation required by governments to maintain them. As one of the world's first baby boomers (born on VE Day) he acknowledges the unreasonably favourable boom conditions his generation has enjoyed but also recognises the havoc they've wreaked.
