STEPHEN DUCKETT supports Pearls and Irritations.

I am both a daily reader of, and a contributor to John Menadue’s Pearls & Irritations. As a reader, Pearls & Irritations provides me with informed commentary on contemporary policy issues, written for a non-specialist across a range of fields including the environment, religious affairs and the economy.  As a contributor, Pearls & Irritations is valuable because it provides an independent platform which allows policy analysts and commentators to reach a wide, informed audience of policy influencers and decision-makers.

Stephen Duckett is Director, Health Programs, Grattan Institute.  He was formerly Secretary of the Department of Human Services and Health.


From John Menadue.  Please make a financial contribution to help  keep Pearls and Irritations independent, free to all subscribers, free of advertising and with no paywall.

A contribution will help ease our workload,provide technical backup and support and promote Pearls and Irritations to a wider audience. 

See ‘CONTRIBUTE’ in Right Hand Column of home page or at the bottom of this email.
