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.

The RBA to Tweet. Nerd heaven.

A few days back we got @SwannyDPM

Now we're about to get @RBAInfo

The Bank begins tweeting tomorrow Thursday March 31 (perhaps because April 1 is a bad look).

I am trying to get the team 1000 followers before they start

We are half way there. They are 560 and gaining by the minute!

Grogs suggests aiming for 10,000.

Come on nerds!

Others suggest a book on the first tweet.
