The week that was…
The week was all about the numbers; first the polls, then the economic indicators.
Pollster John Stirton explained that the ALP is not yet unelectable, Mumble explained what the polls were really saying and Carney reminded us how difficult it is to implement major change. Be sure to sneak past the Australian’s paywall to read Kelly’s excellent piece on the poisoned chalice.
Most of the economic pieces celebrated the robust economic indicators released this week, although Colebatch reserved his delight. Grog and Irvine explained skills and the housing problem to us non-economists.
Finally, don’t forget to check out former editor Michael Gawenda’s piece on newspapers needing to getting back to their core business.
