I have worked as a senior economist for over a decade, most recently with Westpac and St.George Bank. A big part of the job was communicating what was going on in the economy and financial markets, and working out what was going to happen.
There are two main purposes to writing independently. Firstly, I hope to rediscover what I enjoyed about economics. Secondly, this space is one avenue in which to explore different ways in which economics can be delivered. The ultimate aim? To bring economics to light in a way which is going to be interesting and relevant to every day people.
I am also offering freelance services. If you think your business could benefit from independent economic commentary and analysis, contact me, and we can work something out.
