  1. I'm glad I found this blog (not too sure whether it was Econonistview or Interfluidity or both) but keep it keep it up, I enjoy it. (I'm a 60 year old Australian ex-pat - BEcon ex-RBA living in Germany making my living writing programs).

  2. Hi Cameron,
    I've stumbled upon your blog while searching for reviews of Robinson-Eatwell textbook. I'm a history student looking for a basic economics textbook, some kind of an introductory course that would help me understand basic principles and a history of most prominent economic theories. Do you think Robinson Eatwell is a good place to start, or would you recommend something else?
    Thanks a lot,


  3. Would you be in a position to re-examine the existing strata title laws with a view to reform,
    in a similar manor as the liquor licensing rethink.
    If we could strata title an existing house, with each bedroom having its own title free and clear.
    The common areas would be the kitchen, laundry, bathrooms etc.
    This arrangement for common areas is not completely foreign to the existing strata arrangements.

    A reform of this caliber would radically change the property landscape ...allowing an entry into the property market
    for young renters who are quite used to such arrangements.

    This would also take a lot of pressure off such ideas as using super to buy a house.
    This is a very simplified overview, however it does seem to have some merit .
    Yours Faithfully
    Mark Grau
