The response to my last post was overwhelming!

It received as many page views as all my previous 55 posts put together, attracted over 130 comments, and was re-posted at The Drum.

It’s slightly distressing, in a way, that that post attracted so much attention. It was more or less just a list of simple income statistics, drawn from publicly available sources. Is there really such a dearth of facts in our public debate that a few simple ABS stats can make waves?

Anyway, I just thought I’d take the opportunity to welcome any new readers who have stuck around, and thank you all for sharing the previous post so widely.
