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.

Wayne Swan, on work-life balance


Abbott is today taking part in the Iron Man Triathlon.

Here's Wayne Swan, on RN Breakfast:
"I frankly have trouble understanding how he finds the time to do it. Because these jobs are all-consuming, we are dealing with very important issues and particularly in the last few years dealing with a global recession and its impact on our economy. I can't understand how any senior person in the Opposition can find the time to go off surfing all of the time."
