Don't Panic! It's Only Supply-Side Inflation

Friday, 26 August 2022 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Wayne McMillan on inflation

By the end of this second half of our conversation with Wayne McMillan, you will know more than many past and present federal treasurers about how to run a national economy. Spoiler: it doesn't include blaming wage earners for this latest bout of inflation.
