What's it like to wake up every morning and know that every decision you make at work today will have a profound effect on the lives of millions of Australians?

As Australia's Labor Treasurer during the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) , Wayne Swan did exactly that. Swan guided Australia through the GFC as other major economies around the world suffered disastrous recession, job loss and social unrest.

These days, Wayne Swan is a retired parliamentarian and President of The Australian Labor Party. Francis paid a visit to Wayne Swan's Brisbane home and sat down with him to discuss the current state of the Australian economy, the future of work and how a future with decent secure jobs in a carbon neutral economy is in our hands.
