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.

Action stations tonight, 7.30 pm


Here's where to look:

The budget documents, including the speech, which acts as a guide will be here on the Budget site from just after 7.30 pm.

Mirror sites here and here and here and here.

ABC TV and local radio will carry the budget speech live from 7.30 pm AEST. After that Kerry O'Brien will host a half-hour TV special and Tony Eastley will host a one-hour radio special.

Also shortly after 7.30 pm these websites will be buzzing with info:

The Age

The SMH

The Australian

Also Crikey will provide coverage from 8.00 pm AEST (at least for subscribers)

And in the morning there will be massive and different coverage in the paper versions of the newspapers. Buy one, my salary depends on it.

Enjoy.
