A Modest Member

A selected listing of Bert’s articles from the Australian Financial Review published between 1969 and 1977 when Bert was the Federal member for the electorate of Wakefield. After he lost Liberal Party pre-selection in 1977, Bert continued to write as ‘A Modest Farmer’. Our sincere thanks to Benjamin Marks (www.economics.org.au) for converting Bert’s hard copy publications into electronic form.
