Notes

The following descriptive text, referencing the design of the cover, appeared inside this RBA magazine, "This month's cover designed by Alistair Morrison of Sydney and represents the thought that although money may not always bring happiness it is nice to hit the financial bull's-eye sometimes. We think Alistair is right."
