Ross Gittins

BCom (Newcastle), Hon DLitt (Macquarie), Hon DSc (Economics) (Sydney), FCA, FRSN


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.

Mr Gittins is also a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia.
