Wayne Swan Best & Worst Ever Treasurer of Australia

Wayne Swan will be remembered as the Treasurer who chased the impossible dream of a budget surplus despite being damned to eternal deficit.

He was deemed the World’s Greatest Treasurer in recognition of his inspired work in helping Australia avoid the Global Financial Crisis by creating the Australian Financial Crisis.

Wayne’s political career is traced here through articles and cartoons chronicling how he stayed true to a dynasty of deficit despite the temptations of surplus, the fact that he strived manfully at the Treasurer’s job despite not fully understanding how things added up and how he identified Kevin’s shortcomings before the rest of us cottoned on.
