Well it’s not a new topic for me, but if anyone’s interested Lateral Economics got quite a bit of coverage for a study for Western Sydney showing that had the toll roads of Sydney been funded by governments rather than the private sector the NSW public sector would be worth over $4 billion more than it is now. Inside Story asked me to write it up, which I did and now Crikey like it and want to republish it. I wasn’t going to post it here, but there you are – if they like it, maybe you will – so go read it.
Then come back here and comment on it if you want.
Postscript: Ross Gittins takes up the story.
