George Megalogenis is the political commentator behind the popular Meganomics blog published by The Australian. As a measure of George's standing in the Australian political landscape, one simply needs to look at the launch of his 2006 novel, The Longest Decade, which was largely concerned with the Paul Keating/John Howard era. Both Howard and Keating agreed to launch the book (at separate events of course), while George's latest book, The Australian Moment, which pinpoints the moments and events that have shaped Australia's good fortune and national character, was launched by the current Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.
After spending 11 years in the Canberra Press Gallery, George has earned himself a spot amongst the nation's most respected political commentators, with an eye for objectivity and a taste for political analysis.
