218 Andrew Wear: The Recovery

Ep. 218

Andrew Wear

Andrew is a regular on Humans of Purpose and wears a couple of hats. He is the City Economist at City of Melbourne, he is a terrific author who tackles only the most challenging and fascinating subjects and he is also a Non-Executive Director at Ardoch. Andrew’s latest book is Recovery. How we can create a better, brighter future after a crisis.


In Recovery, Andrew asks as we emerge from the COVID-19 health and economic crisis, what can we learn from other recoveries? You can find Recovery at all good bookstores and online retailers. If you prefer online, purchase via publisher Black Inc Books, who will include free shipping!
