It’s a brave new war.

WCry attack should be a wake up call

I don’t promote the fact heavily, but I am a rep for a cyber security company that is one of the few (maybe only?) that can stop attacks like the WCry Cryptolocker attack (also called by many other names such as ‘WannaCrypt’) before they even start. That’s another story, but if you’re an IT boffin […]

Final week to buy Libertarian Conference Tickets!

Don't miss the #1 Libertarian event of the year!

Make no mistake, you don’t want to miss the 2017 Friedman Liberty Conference, being held in Sydney on April 28th-30th. The lineup of speakers reads like an international who’s who of the liberty community, with a vast and wide range of speakers known for their insight, humour, intellect, and passion. Add to that an astonishing […]

Did you know that there’s a privately run, market driven housing affordability scheme which is subsidizing housing to the tune of $11 Billion every year?

This is my take on the Housing Affordability Crisis and the outrage against ‘negative gearing’… and a lot of people aren’t going to like it.

Venezuela leads the fight against obesity

2nd only to North Korea

Venezuela are leading the way in the fight against obesity. While we sit here debating the merits of a sugar tax, they’ve taken real action by making all food hard to find, and it’s really paying off: According to new results from an annual national survey, nearly three-quarters of respondents reported losing an average of 19 pounds […]

Driverless Drone Taxis to be a reality this year

What will the taxi lobby do now?

With all the hoo-har surrounding the breaking up of the taxi licensing cartel, Australia is being left behind. While we’re still arguing about who gets to drive a taxi, other parts of the world are doing away with the drivers altogether. According to the Chinese manufacturer ehang, Dubai will have their pilotless drones available to […]

Trump might cut $10T in spending

But it still won't balance the budget

Trump has been busy in his first week, and I’ve been more pleased with his actions than I expected to be. And if current rumors turn out to be true, then we might be in for a very interesting 4 years indeed: The departments of Commerce and Energy would see major reductions in funding, with […]

Affordable Housing Crisis is Government-made

Landlords demonized for giving $11Billion subsidy to renters.

The clamor to ‘fix the housing affordability crisis’ grows louder with each passing week, and the debate surrounding housing affordability is as ill-informed as you might expect. The incoming NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has listed housing affordability as one of her top priorities, and don’t expect political talk of the ‘crisis’ to go away any time […]

The Trump-ocalypse is upon us

The risks and opportunities of the next 4 years

Donald Trump is now President of the United States of America, Commander In Chief of the worlds most powerful military, at the helm of the worlds largest economy, and all whilst maintaining the most confusing hair in history. Who’s making ‘Ginger’ jokes now? His inauguration speech was heavy on optimism and faith in the American […]

It’s a proper Brexit!

Theresa May honors the will of the British people.

I’ve been watching with interest to see whether the British Government would try and weasel its way out of a proper Brexit, and to my surprise, it seems they’ll be honoring the results of the vote and completely exiting from all aspects of the EU, including the migration zone and the economic zone. LONDON — Theresa […]
