Another email newsletter. I’ve been working fairly quietly for the last few weeks, but I recently attended an interesting panel discussion with Joe Stiglitz, the Nobel Laureate who brought the “1 per cent” to popular attention. He pointed to some interesting research by Mark Stelzner at Connecticut College relating the rise in inequality to anti-union decisions by the National Labor Relations Board (rough equivalent of the Fair Work Commission). The important question, is whether the campaign to Change the Rules can help to reverse this process. More on this from me before too long, I hope.
On 29 November, I’ll be in Sydney at a Forum organized by the Royal Society of NSW and various Academies on the topic “Towards a prosperous and sustainable Australia: what now for the lucky country?.
I’ll be talking about how to get climate policy back on track.
Economics in Two Lessons
I’m dealing with minor but important things like blurbs, permissions and so forth.
US publication is currently scheduled for May 2019, hopefully with an Australian edition to follow. I’ve set up a Facebook page (see below) and have been posting extracts regularly.
