An updated version of my research with Tony Atkinson on top incomes is written up by John Garnaut in the SMH today. There’s not much there to surprise regular readers of this blog. But since it’s not every day that I crack the front page of the SMH, I thought I’d indulge in some shameless self-promotion.
Alas, Cathy Wilcox’s accompanying cartoon isn’t available online.
Update: I did an interview for Today Tonight on top incomes this morning. We were in a courtyard garden at Parliament House, and the reporter had to keep stopping the interview to prevent her two-year old son from falling into the fountain, pulling all the heads off the flowers, etc. Twas one of the more entertaining interviews I’ve done recently, but when it’s edited for TV (should be on tomorrow or the night after), I may end up looking like I have attention deficit disorder.
