Ewin Hannan from The Australian wrote an article about The Accord, with reference from Professor Ray Markey and other speakers at the symposium "The Accord: 30 Years On" hosted by the Centre for Workforce Futures at Macquarie University on 31 May 2013.
Professor Ray Markey spoke to ABC's RN National about the Labour Accord, marking it's 30th Anniversary.
"On the 30th anniversary of the historic IR agreement the Prices and Incomes Accord, a leading workforce academic says we should be grateful for the deal, which allowed Australia to restructure its economy without tearing apart its sense of community and creating class divisions for years to come."

Topic: The Accord and "The Accord saved us from Thatcherism"
Excerpt: "Thirty years on, Professor Markey believes that the ‘underlying principles’ of the Accord, which he described as ‘compromise, consultation and consensus’ between labour and employers, are still relevant today.
We have a lot more [consensus] than people realise, for example the ACTU and the Australian Confederation of Industry (ACI) have a joint statement of skills in Australia,’ he said. The media ignores these contemporary agreements because they are ‘not about conflict,’ he added."

Title: Should ASIC consider social media disclosures?
Date: 5 April 2013
Author: Harrison Polites
Excerpt: "The regulator already has its hands full when it comes keeping companies releasing key information in an honest and timely manner, he says citing a recent disclosure spat between ASIC and mining giant Fortescue.
Quilter also contends that such open disclosure rules may be tailored towards stemming the turmoil gripping the US economy. He says that making company announcements more open and visible via social media may work to bolster the US economy and encourage investment. While that may be necessary in the US at the moment, Quilter says that Australia can afford to have tighter, more regulated disclosure rules as it has a stronger economy.
He also suspects that our investment community may be more technologically “conservative” than the US, hinting that a shift to social media disclosures in Australia could see some shareholders miss out on having timely access to important company information altogether."

Title: Myanmar Abolishes Dollar Surrogate
Date: 20 March 2013
Author: Kirim Komentar
Excerpt: "Sean Turnell, a Myanmar economic expert at Australia's Macquarie University, said the announcement could be a new test of public confidence in the government's handling of the economy.
"In the past movements like this have caused panics, but perhaps there is greater trust in monetary arrangements now," he said, adding that those holding FECs would rush to convert them to dollars.
"Given the rise of the kyat, and depending on when they bought the FECs, many FEC holders might experience a considerable capital loss in kyat terms," Turnell said."

Title: Who are the teleworkers?
Excerpt: "Macquarie University academic Dr Yvette Blout says more needs to be done to spread the benefits of teleworking to all workers.
‘‘Many workers have been knocked back from teleworking because their bosses think they don’t have the qualities needed to be a teleworker,’’ she says. "Also, for people who were in the office, if there was something urgent that came up and the manger needed
something done, the people who were visible in the office got the extra work or got the interruption, not the people at home. If they wanted access to the teleworker, they felt they couldn't disturb them and not pick up the phone because they would be interrupting them."
