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."

Enrol in Joshua Gans's course on digital strategy (YouTube video ad!?)

I guess if you are going to teach digital strategy, you have to signal some sort of knowledge of execution ability. Prof. Josh Gans does this nicely with his new YouTube video advertisement (see below). Josh: this is great. But Josh: Your iPad app for Core Economics truly sucks! I cannot bring myself to read it--it is that bad. Can you please give us an option on the iPad app to click through to the original "web version" of Core Economics (and don't assume the absence of responses to your post on this subject means you are right and I am wrong. Au contraire, it may simply mean I am the only one who tries to read CE on an iPad!)?
