THE DISTILLERY: Casino chase

Scribes look at the ongoing battle over Barangaroo, with one saying both Crown and Echo Entertainment are keeping their cards close.

Crown billionaire James Packer has been jabbing at Echo Entertainment for some time and the latter’s chief executive John Redmond has started punching back. Two business scribes have taken a look at Redmond’s address to the Sydney Business Chamber, with a specific focus on Packer’s apparent lack of transparency in regards to the plans for Barangaroo.

Also in this morning’s edition of The Distillery, we’re talking cars. Specifically, we’re talking the plans to fix the Victorian taxi industry and the demands on an automotive insurer when driving is becoming safer.
