This will draw on a wide range of material: a bit of autobiography/reminiscence about 30+ years at the SMH- a bit on his conclusions about journalism (not flattering), and politics (ditto)- about how Gittins operated as a columnist (how you pick topics- keep changing the subject- avoid the columnists terminal sin, predictability- and keep searching for the change of pace)- about writing for the reader, not to impress contacts or other journalists- about the techniques used to make economics interesting and accessible to the public- about how to lie with graphs and statistics, etc. This book is intended to be Gittins legacy to the economic journalists of the future, but will be of interest to a much wider audience.
