Holidays be damned -our favourite economist, public purveyor of ‘randomised trials”  and all round good guy Andrew Leigh has won pre-selection for the safe Canberra seat of Fraser.

A person of Andrew’s public policy caliber getting a better-than-good chance to enter the nation’s Parliament is literally a once in a generation affair.

Congrats to Andrew – anyone that cares about thoughtful, empirical based policy with a humanist lean and the raw power of intellectual analysis should tonight be rejoicing.

This is what Parliament is supposed to be.
