Malcolm Turnbull, a former lawyer, banker and businessman, was sworn in on Tuesday as the 29th Prime Minister of Australia. He replaces Tony Abbott. Abbott's controversial policies - mostly broken promises of more socialism and declining popularity among Australians made him an quick and easy target after February's no confidence vote.

Political turmoil affected by a contracting global economy is only one aspect of change that will be commonplace throughout the globe in the near future. Significant economic and social changes are inevitable as citizens loss confidence leaders, structures, and policies promised to make their lives better. It's only a matter of time before the party and people turn on Turnbull.
