Tom McCarthy is a keen analyst of the systems and frameworks that impact our lives, including governmental, corporate and media.
With piercing insight, much of his work implores readers to address systemic deficiencies by assuming greater ownership of their own participation.
McCarthy has written comment pieces for some of Australia's most renowned news services on an array of subjects, including the Essendon Football Club drug saga and criminal sentencing guidelines.
His debut book, The Dark Side of the Punt, looks at a country flirting with a gambling epidemic and explores the multi-faceted complexities that make change extremely difficult to effect.
