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.

"Is the end nigh? Is everything we know and trust in the world economy about to collapse? And if so, what might come after the economic apocalypse? The news is currently filled with grim predictions about markets and economies—sovereign debt, austerity, loans and credit default swaps are the buzzwords of our time. Our panel explores the eurozone crisis and the world's present economic woes, and discusses what the economy of the future might look like."
