Media highlights

thumbs upWe don’t want our research to sit on a shelf collecting dust – our aim is to influence the debate, whether that’s via Lateline, Today Tonight, Crikey, The Global Mail, Sky, The Project, Triple J or Radio National Breakfast.

And sometimes we’re lucky enough to land two spots on the ABC in one night, like on 6 June when David Richardson was interviewed for The Business on the failure of the big banks to pass on interest rate cuts, and Matt Grudnoff gave his take on the latest GDP figures and the impact of the mining boom on other sectors of the economy for 7.30 with Chris Uhlmann.

Here is some of our favourite media coverage this year:

Alan Jones, 2GB – the latest in the fight against coal seam gas

Ross Gittins, SMH – The case to slow down the mining boom

Weekend Sunrise – on the budget surplus

ABC ‘PM’ with Mark Colvin – PM says she doesn’t have the numbers on pokies reform

The Global Mail – An unproductive obsession

The Business – Mining tax “makes good sense”

Today Tonight – Australia’s price rip-off

Counterpoint with Michael Duffy – Economic models: uses and abuses

Richard is now writing a fortnightly column for the Australian Financial Review, in addition to his fortnightly column in The Canberra Times, and monthly spot on Sky Lunchtime Agenda. If you’re in the Riverina area, you can also hear him with the ABC’s Anne Delaney every second Monday morning.
