The price of electricity and gas has been surging, with power bills front and centre of people’s cost-of-living concerns.

In this episode we break down what’s driving these price rises and what you can do about it.

Our economists discuss what’s going on and bust some myths along the way, including from politicians and the role of renewables.

We also dive into what the new Albanese ministry means for the government’s priorities and read the tea leaves from the latest economic growth data.

Plus: Heard of ‘wellbeing economics’? We talk about why it’s the new way forward and examine how it could change everything.

Independent economist and Climate Council councillor Nicki Hutley and senior economist at Barrenjoey Johnathan McMenamin join Gillian for this insightful episode.
