Green shoots in renewable energy; Optus and the Reserve Bank in a contest to slow the Australian economy; and the Trumpisation of Australian politics. Read on for the weekly roundup of links to articles, podcasts, reports and other media on current economic and political issues.

Australia’s re-awakening renewable energy industry

A pep talk from the government. Rooftops to the rescue. Green shoots: moves into the renewable industry supply chain. How Australia can become a green energy superpower. Public opinion – how economists, voters, and Tony Abbott believe we should deal with climate change.

Other economics

The chorus that pushed the RBA to raise interest rates. Optus versus the RBA: which one can do more damage to the Australian economy? Australians on the move – out of Sydney and Melbourne.

Politics and public policies

Calling out the wreckers. Calling out the government on whistleblower protection. Have we absorbed the public health lessons from Covid?

Public ideas

The era when we looked to America. Business ideas – how simplified ideas of productivity and profit serve business and the economy poorly.

Harmony from a troubled middle east
