I'm a Victorian economic refugee. I hail from Melbourne, but every working week I commute to and from Wagga to work at the university there. I may well be the first of a new generation of Victorians who have to regularly travel interstate to find employment; everyone now knows that Victoria, and especially Melbourne, is bearing the brunt of this recession. At the University I am charged with explaining the nuances of economics to first year students. As a model of inspiration, I always proffer Paul Keating as an example of someone who made good by his mastery of economics.
