Professor of Economics, UNSW
Book I’m reading…
Economics in the age of COVID-19 by Joshua Gans
Joshua is a terrific economist, an Australian now at University of Toronto. This book on the long-term implications of COVID is accessible but also important.
Articles I’ve written…
- On the need a bigger revolution in our national thinking about debt and deficits
- On the efficacy of lockdowns
- That economic arguments should not be used to undermine the views of public health experts
- Exploring the case for universal basic income to protect jobs and incomes, now and in the future
What I’m eating…
The granola I make and keep in the pantry pre, during, and post-COVID, from the 3-Michelin starred New York restaurant Eleven Madison Park.
What I’m listening to…
Gil Scott-Heron’s The Revolution Will Not Be Televised is a song I have quoted in some opinion pieces, that seems apposite.
