NEWSFLASH! In September I will join The Conversation as its Business and Economy Editor. I have been honoured to work at The Age for the past ten years, originally alongside the legendry Tim Colebatch, and for the past four years as economics editor in my own right.

At The Conversation, my job will be to make the best thinking from Australia's 40 univerisites accessible to the widest possible audience. That means you. From the new year I will also write a weekly column.

On this site are most of the important things I have written for Fairfax and the ABC over the past few decades. I recommend the Search function. The site is a record for you, as well as me.

I'll continue to post great things from The Conversation and other places here, and also on Twitter and Facebook. Enjoy.

Got something to say about Tasmanian water?

Should it flow to Melbourne, freeing Victoria's water to flow to Adelaide?

Commentator Dave Bath says the inquiry into Melbourne's Future water supply, set up by the Vic Victorian Legislative Council is now open for submissions.

So get them in.

Some details on the inquiry here.

Kenneth Davidson in the Melbourne Age continues to promote the idea.
