A win for economics, a win for parliament, a win for my suburb..

Andrew Leigh selected Labor candidate for Fraser 

How did he do it?

"A lot of phone calls."

Here's Andrew's account.

A person of Andrew’s public policy caliber getting a better-than-good chance to enter the nation’s Parliament is literally a once in a generation affair.

Congrats to Andrew – anyone that cares about thoughtful, empirical based policy with a humanist lean and the raw power of intellectual analysis should tonight be rejoicing.

This is what Parliament is supposed to be.
