Show Notes
With the summer heatwave hitting, Karl looks into the shortcomings of economic theory allowing insiders to make easy profits and pollute at will. We used to laugh at paying for oxygen but they now do so willingly in Asia. Will shade be next? The show also discusses profiteering distortions undermining our solar farms – before they are even built.

One of Australia’s leading economic modellers, Ben Phillips (ANU) joins to discuss his latest research into the housing supply mantra. He provides some illumination to the standard lines. We then delve into the future of economic modelling, best practices and the need to model a certain something. Thanks for your patience, a little technical issue with our 3CR pod feed this week.
