“Why do we do this? Have you seen the alternative? The Australian mainstream media? It’s a gaggle of press releases presented in a cling wrap of captured commentary. Unwrap it and you find nothing but one business agenda after another. Mainstream media can no longer afford to employ smart enough people to judge the difference between that and the interests of its readers.“
Leith van Onselen (aka the ‘Unconventional Economist’) has previously worked as an economist at the Australian Treasury, Victorian Treasury and Goldman Sachs.
