Profile

In my 40 years as an economic columnist on The Sydney Morning Herald and, later, The Age, I have striven to describe developments in the economy and explain changes in economic policy in language understandable to my readers. I seek to simplify without oversimplifying. I put economic policy measures in their political context, while often revealing the economy theories underlying those measures, as well as any empirical evidence relevant to their likely effectiveness. In this I have drawn heavily on the publications of many bureaucratic and academic economists, as well as personal communications.
