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.
