Paddling furiously below the surface

Sorry the blog has been so quiet! I swear I have been busy, just elsewhere.

Here’s a little slice of what I’ve been up to.

CRIKEY

Why the drugs backstage at music festivals are now for arthritis.

Has Keynes wrested Defence policy from Kissinger?

Why money means more to the poor.

NEWS

A nice story on the unexpected divergence of underemployment and unemployment.

A controversial piece bashing the idea of high-speed rail.

Some more truth torpedos about submarines.

THE NEW DAILY

The rise and rise of the SUV.

The rise and fall of the ATM.

Special bonus photos: 1. me (left) when they invited me on Lateline to talk the Federation; and 2. the blog’s editorial director, Susie Brown, making a few edits.
