I’ll devote this post to general points about Gaza, many of them arising from letters I’ve received or points made here. First of all I’ll just dispose of a couple of comments that stand out. John Edwards writes ‘When discussing...
One of the messages of John Edwards' Beyond the Boom is that Australia sailed through the 2008 crisis unscathed. As a result, Australia's GDP in 2013 was 16% higher than in 2007, while many of the G7 countries had barely regained their pre-crisis GDP level: the strongest rebound, in Canada, was only 8% above its 2007 GDP.

As John Edwards revives his legal career following his scandal-plagued political tenure, the ghosts of his past still haunt him in the courtroom.
Growth in HALE index, Intangible GDP, net national income and GDP, 2005-2014. John Edwards' Beyond the Boom tilts effectively against Australia's congenital Hanrahanism. It points out the extent to which we managed to finance the wild...Show More Summary
John Edwards' Beyond the Boom is a welcome follow-up to his 2006 Quiet Boom, which I reviewed at the time in conjunction with Ian Macfarlane's Boyer Lectures.

Judith Sloan sums up my Beyond the Boom paper in two propositions: 'what mining boom?', and 'she'll be right, mate'. Those who have read the paper will recognise these propositions as gross caricatures. For those who haven't got round...Show More Summary
I argue in this review of John Edwards’ After the Boom that it’s neither mining, nor macro reform. The reason our economy has done so well over the past 20 years is that policymakers have made the right macroeconomic policy calls when it mattered, during the Asian crisis of the 1990s and the GFC.
Reading John Edwards Beyond the Boom, I am struck by how easy it is to take the same facts, and treat them as good or bad news. The factual core of Edwards' argument is that the importance of the mining boom to the living standards of ordinary Australians has been greatly exaggerated. I entirely agree. Show More Summary
As growth in China slows and Australia’s mining boom ends, Australians are asking, Can our luck last? Australia’s Lowy Institute asked me to discuss John Edward’s new monograph Beyond the Boom. My comments and those of a number of experts can be found here. Here is one bit of interest at both antipodes: As Jon […]
There are two phrases that sum up John Edwards' new book, Beyond the Boom, a Lowy Institute Paper released last week. They are: Mining boom? What mining boom? She'll be right, mate. While I disagree with both propositions, I am in heated...Show More Summary

Before he destroyed his career through irresponsible self-indulgence, zillionaire trial lawyer John Edwards used to demagogue about there being two Americas. Maybe he was right. But it isn’t the two Americas of wicked capitalists and the righteous proletariat, as characterized by Edwards. Show More Summary
