A wise innkeeper never lets a bed get cold before renting the room to a new guest. So it is here at Troppo. Scarcely has Mark Bahnisch rubbed the sleep from his eyes and ventured out into the big bad world of blogging, than Nicholas Gruen leaps in between the armadillian sheets (see his first post immediately below).
Nicholas trained in history (the only real education he ever got, so he says – hope he’s not trying to grease Currency Lad and Christopher Sheil), economics and public policy, law and stats.
He was appointed to the Productivity Commission (then Industry Commission) in 1994 where he remained till 1997 when he left to take up a position with the Business Council of Australia. Since 2000 Nicholas has founded and run two businesses – www.lateraleconomics.com and www.peachhomeloans.com.au. He’s also a visiting fellow at ANU and Melbourne Uni and a weekly columnist for the Courier Mail.
Are we launching another blogosphere star to rival Mark and Chris? I certainly hope so.
