Bernard Salt has been a columnist with The Australian newspaper for more than a decade. He writes two weekly columns as well as ad hoc opinion pieces. His columns are:
- Thursday Primespace (usually page 28), which provides business insight into demographic, social and consumer behaviour
- The Weekend Australian Magazine, which offers a more whimsical perspective on life issues.
Bernard’s Thursday column is usually accompanied on The Australian website by a video clip in which he summarizes the key issues and implications for business.
Bernard’s Saturday columns have been collated into two books published by Melbourne University Publishing in 2013 and 2014.
Bernard also writes a monthly column for the Australian Property Investor magazine (available through newsagents). And for more than a decade he wrote regularly for Property Australia which is a publication of the Property Council of Australia.
In the past Bernard has written columns for the Melbourne Herald-Sun opinion pages, for the upscale Wish magazine, for the Melbourne Magazine, as well as for other incidental publications.
