Worrying that Mr Turnbull and Mr Morrison are trying to avoid responsibility for Australia's negative economic growth this quarter.

And who do they curiously call on for 'analysis'? Someone Treasury itself publicly debunked years ago.

By the way, if you'd like to read more about the benefits of Australia's fiscal stimulus during the Global Financial Crisis there are lots of references at...

In selecting Mr. Branstad, who likes to describe President Xi Jinping as an “old friend,” the president-elect was using a softer tone alongside his unrelenting criticism of China.

While the Chinese appear to be applying "strategic patience", President Elect Trump appears to be testing them.

But how will it sort out on the big questions of the economy, and the strategic question of North Korea? That is when the rubber will hit the road.

Today I penned some thoughts on the future reform of the Labor Party.

IT'S TIME for a new Labor Reform Movement.

Factions will strangle Labor if the party does not embrace reform

Was interviewed this morning in New York by Squawk Box CNBC on President Elect Trump, China and North Korea.

The North Korea nuclear program is the key.

Trump's approach to China

Spoke to the Hamburg Summit: China meets Europe yesterday about seven international policy themes that emerge from President Trump's view of the world.

The Hamburg Summit: China meets Europe is a fascinating gathering of experts from the economic, political and academic world with the goal of improving the economic relations and the understanding of each other. #HS16

In 2009 as Prime Minister, I set up DonateLife to get more Australians talking about organ donation, and giving the gift of life.

Who is this man Donald Trump? And what will he bring to the world?

Many will spend hours analysing each of his policy statements during the campaign.

These folks should go to the beach instead.

President-elect Trump does not believe he is bound by anything he said in the campaign. He sees himself as having complete flexibility. Much better to understand the nature of the man and the...

Kevin Rudd: How should the world engage Trump? Here are my thoughts.

Great to back in Brisbane briefly and to be able to talk to Lateline about what the Trump presidency may mean for Australia and the region.

What is certain is that it never serves Australia's alliance interests with the United States to simply become a doormat.

Lateline - 10/11/2016: Interview: Kevin Rudd, Former Labor Prime Minister

Mr Turnbull likes lying about asylum seeker policy.

Fact: He wasn’t Opposition Leader when the Pacific Solution was abolished.

Fact: There was no “begging” not to do it, or even to reinstate it.

Fact: Opposition Leader Mr Turnbull April 2009: ”Well the Pacific Solution has been superseded by the detention facilities on Christmas Island, so that is a non-issue.”

Fact : Shadow Immigration...
