2008 Blake Dawson Prize for Business

The Blake Dawson Prize for Business Literature is not an award that I have come across before. Anyway, "The Australian" newspaper is reporting that the 2008 prize has been won by Caroline Overington for her work Kickback: Inside the Australian Wheat Board Scandal. You'll recall that the Australian Wheat Board got caught providing kickbacks to the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein prior to the Second Gulf War. The prize is worth $30,000 to the winner.
