Gittins just mellows down the government's current economic policy so that students like us can understand them. In your textbook you learn the concepts you need to pass the exam, if you can apply some of Gittins statistics that would be good. Also if you can't understand something your teacher or textbook has informed you about then Gittins may address it in one of his articles. It's important to research from a variety of mediums, his articles are simplified, yet extremely effective! Go Ross ^_^
ah good 'ole rossy..he's my hero...the teachers all love him because he makes their workload a whole lot less. everything he says (well everything that's relevant to wat we're studying) is another thing to add in our responses..all the stats and all the info
Even though his articles do show his opinion and bias towards certion aspects his articles are really good to summaries wats happening in and outside the country. I highly recommend his articles to all economics students.
