The times they are a changin'

Hi guys. This is just a quick note to let you know I'll be joining the folks at Macro Business. If you haven't seen the site yet, it's a "superblog" with some of Australia's best bloggers covering the economics and finance world in Australia and beyond.

Since the team already has several very talented people writing about Australia, and since I'm currently based in New York, I'm going to change my focus a bit and give my perspective on what's going on in the US. The main focus will be the economy and financial markets, but I will also delve into politics and possibly other important issues like who wore the best outfit to the Oscars. In any case, you can read my first post here.

As for this humble blog, I will keep it alive for now, and may post occasionally if I have anything to say about Australia.  Since I have a day job, it's likely to be sporadic at best though. Thanks to all the readers and commenters so far, and please hop over to Macro Business and check it out.

Cheers

  3. Hi FF

    I'm assuming you're Rotten Apple in the US over at Macrobusiness. Thought this may interest you, as some of your columns indicate a deeper political interest - sit with it - Chris Hedges on the death of the liberal class. Thought provoking - he touches on the historical perspective, the sellout by the liberal class (democrats) to corporations, the health system, Wall St and the military industrial complex. Also the destruction of the working class, the belittling of some of this class on popular tv (a reason I think Boganomics is not the direction Macrobusiness should take, simply a vehicle to make a lot of people feel overly superior and good about themselves). Can see that Labor here in oz is also beholden to the corporate class. Any way, you may enjoy it (or loathe it if I've misread you!).

  4. Anon -- Hi there. I had a listen - that's a great interview, and no, you have not misread me!

    I'll probably be addressing politics a bit more on Macrobusiness, although it does seem to attract the loonies in the comments whenever I do so...

  5. Hi FF

    You may find this video from Dandelion Salad interesting - most of it we know but still good to see it pulled together in one piece. Primarily the failure of Obama (and effectively US democracy) to effectively address the financial crisis. Or wars - and looks as though the US military industrial complex is about to get another gift in the form of intervention in Libya (and other oil states?). After all Defence was slated for substantial budget cuts...
