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."

Saturday AFR news exclusive and column links

In the Weekend AFR I have a page one, exclusive news story entitled, “RBA governor mulling retirement”. You can read it here

I also have my standard Saturday column, “Housing gain, retiree pain via cheap money”, covering the RBA’s December board meeting and what it means for housing, cash, floating-rate bonds, fixed-rate bonds, and equities. You can read my opinion piece here.

The AFR has massively boosted its content in the last year or so under the leadership of Brett Clegg and Michael Stutchbury. You can access the entire newspaper and the many magazines/lift-outs online or via an iPad for circa $1.90 a day here.
