Links to some recent writing

Marriage & inequality: On Medium (because the graph display is better than WordPress), I respond to Jennifer Oriel’s call for more ‘compassionate conservatism’ centred around encouraging people to get married. I say she got the numbers wrong, and the welfare state is better at tackling disadvantage anyway.

Free trade agreement modelling: In Inside Story, I take a look at the government’s commissioned modelling for the China-Australia free trade agreement and say ‘meh’.

The metaphors of money: In Inside Story, I give a mixed review of John Lanchester’s new dictionary of money-related terms.

Foreign investment in Australia: On East Asia Forum,Shiro Armstrong, Sam Reinhardt and I argue for deregulating Australia’s foreign investment regime for all countries, not just the big ones.
