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."

Hiking in Wolgan Valley today--wombats, wallaroos and wild dogs

I am currently hiking around Wolgan Valley--past the Blue Mountains--with my 12 month old son, Jesse. I took this shot from my camera phone this afternoon. We've been punching out about 10-20kms a day, and have seen an extraordinary number of wallaroos, a wombat, and even a big wild dog...It is such a beautiful part of NSW.
