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.

Don't know how to vote in the Senate?

Go to and work it out.

Then print it out, take it with you, and vote.

And take comfort from the words of my much-missed colleague Andrew Olle.

At the end of each election night telecast he said something like:

"Just remember, whoever you voted for, the sun will still come up tomorrow morning".

Vote well.
