No Crap App: w/b 22 Oct 2012

Canberra Times, 24 Oct 2012

The week that was…

The week started well. Some analyses of the MYEFO mini budget challenged Australia’s continued expectations of middle class welfare. Others called for an end to the surplus charade.

But political commentary descended into farce by the end of the week, with much hyperventilation over the not particularly surprising revelations in McKew’s book.

Meantime, there were some good thinky pieces on Australia’s political environment and what the 2013 election year might look like.

No Crap App: w/b 4 Jun 2012

Moir, SMH 6 Jun 2012

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.
