If you’re looking for rational economic analysis, Ross Gittins’ columns are a safe bet. Not that he’s purely focused on the numbers — Gittins’ latest book The Happy Economist examines how happiness is the most important part of financial success.

A trained chartered accountant, Gittins has held the position of economics editor at The Sydney Morning Herald for over 30 years (with his columns syndicated in The Age). He was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2008 for his services to journalism. He’s written and contributed to a pile of books and journals and was a Nuffield Press fellow at Wolfson College, Cambridge.
