As if you didn’t already know:
Thank you Treasurer Swan.
Thank you Governor Stevens.
Thank you for “saving Australia” from the GFC with your brilliant, “swift and decisive” economic management.
Three and a half years after the peak of the northern hemisphere GFC … and we are almost back to the low point.
Our households’ net worth is back to about where it was in 2001.
And trending down.
Oh yes … and in achieving that remarkable result for us, you have put the country into record debt.
Only $17bn away from the quarter trillion debt ceiling.
You are worth every cent of your $1.05 million (Governor Stevens) and $346,000 (Treasurer Swan) salaries.
