Economics journalist Ross Gittins has come to play an important role in Australia's body politic. Amongst readers of the Fairfax Press, and generations of students studying economics for their Higher School Certificate (and its variations), he almost single-handedly sustains some faith in the economics profession. As I have blogged before, I do not always agree with him. In terms of heterodoxy within economics he rarely strays far from the mainstream. But that is a particularly Australian affliction anyway.
It remains to be seen if Ross sees the same connections and possibilities?
