NEWSFLASH! In October 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 Tim Colebatch, and for the past four years as its economics editor.

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.

Below are most of the important things I have written for Fairfax and the ABC in recent decades. It's a record for me as much as you.

I'll continue to post great things from The Conversation and other places here, and also on Twitter and Facebook. Enjoy.

Budget 2011-12 I'm going in.

At 1.00 pm I go into the lockup.

They won't let me out until 7.30pm, when the Treasurer begins his speech to Parliament.

Like I said, the budget speech will be here at 7.30pm eastern time, and instant analysis will be here.

Any last minute tips on things to look out for?

Any thoughts to carry into the lockup?

Any questions you want answered?

I'll be reading comments (until 1.00pm).
