Policy-Talkin' Macroeconomists

Can anyone suggest academics who might enjoy speaking to the Australian media about macroeconomics? I tend to decline interviews on this topic, but I’d like to be able to direct journalists to other academic economists. Feel free to nominate others (or yourself) in comments.

    Alex Millmow, Senior Lecturer in Economics at Ballarat University always has some interesting takes on Macroeconomics. He has a track record of Newspaper articles on Macroeconomics a.millmow@ballarat.edu.au

    Yeah, it’s really noticeable that commentary in this area is left to financial market economists, who naturally have a very distinct focus (very short term, and tending to see gyrations in these markets as the primary driver of, rather than primarily the product of, economic fluctuations). We need an articulate growth theorist to balance this. Warwick McKibbin, perhaps?

    SBS seems to have Steve Keen on a bit, and NBN, through proximity, favours Bill Mitchell.

    The pot does need to be stirred a bit.
