Australian Federal Election Called

Joshua Gans is endorsing Labor. Not much of a surprise. Australian economists mostly seem to be left wing though he seems a bit less so than many. John Quiggin is endorsing the Greens. I just posted this on Quiggin's blog:

"Well I expect Andrew Leigh will be my new member of parliament. I do favor voting Green as first preference * as a signal to the major parties. That’s what I usually do. The question is could Greens have a chance to get an ACT Senate seat? I expect we’re stuck with one Liberal, one Labor there too."

Otherwise, though, I don't want to make this blog too political.
