Breakfast with Keith De Lacy & me to discuss Beautiful One Day, Broke the Next

Former Queensland Treasurer Keith De Lacy AM and I will speak at an upcoming breakfast in West End, Brisbane on Wednesday 27 February at the Connor Court Book Room regarding my recently published book Beautiful One Day, Broke the Next: Queensland’s Public Finances since Sir Joh and Sir Leo. I’m very much looking forward to hearing more of Keith’s insights into Queensland’s fiscal history and our current situation. Keith made some great contributions to Queensland during his time as Goss government Treasurer (1989-1996), overseeing generally strict budget management and the corporatisation of government-owned businesses, among other achievements. Since that time, Keith has had a distinguished business career and is a former President of the Queensland division of the AICD.

If you’re interested in Queensland state politics or concerned about our current state finances, I expect you would get a lot out of this event in addition to an excellent cooked breakfast from one of West End’s fine cafes. You can book for the breakfast via Eventbrite:

  1. Hi there

    I’ve always admired that painting you’ve got on your book cover.

    Is it by Vida Lahey?

    Just checking, Judging from this page the answer seems to be ‘no’. I think I thin it’s her every time I see it – she was a friend of my grandmother apparently who lived in Brisbane!

    I had a copy of that painting from a bicentennial collection. However my respect for Keith De Lacy has diminished since the Reef Casino AGM a few years ago where he pointed to his head and declared that his independence was entirely a state of mind. Good luck with that relationship.
