One of Australia’s most eminent economic journalists, Ross Gittins, spoke recently at The Newcastle Institute.
Micah was fortunate enough to not only MC the evening but also chaperone Ross around Newcastle for this event. He gleaned several pearls of economic wisdom from him over dinner.
Ross Gittins is renowned for his clarity of vision and his ability to see through the fog and spin that leave others confused. Few can match his ability to explain the complexities and contradictions of the modern economy that affect our daily lives.
The title of his new book – ‘Budgets, Bulldust and Bastardry’ is a small taste of the humour and dry wit that Ross Gittins uses to inform and entertain.
The Newcastle Institute was delighted to welcome Ross back to his home town.
