The author has been described by News Ltd as an "iconoclast", "Svengali", a pollie's "economist muse", and "pungently accurate". Fairfax says he is a "Renaissance man" and "one of Australia’s most respected analysts." Stephen Koukoulas concludes that he is "85% right", and "would make a great Opposition leader." Terry McCrann claims the author thinks "‘nuance’ is a trendy village in the south of France", but can be "scintillating" when he thinks "clearly". The ACTU reckons he’s "an enigma wrapped in a Bloomberg terminal, wrapped in some apparently well-honed abs."

RBA joins Twitter...Seriously!

I just noticed this via Grogs Gamut and Peter Martin...Welcome to Twitter @rbainfo Now, Vanessa Crowe, you know who your very first 'follow' should be! Your fav blogger, @cjoye I have been a very good boy, after all. Only yesterday I congratulated the RBA on it's communications revolution, which VC deserves much credit for too:

"Having said that, it should be noted that Glenn Stevens is a first-rate regulator (of the price of money and financial stability), and deserves immense praise for the way he has revolutionised the conduct, communication, and accountability of monetary policy in Australia. And these are not just my own views: they reflect the opinions of those who have served on the Board under both Stevens and his predecessor."
