From Kris Sayce – Port Phillip Insider (Australia) –
If the Australian economy were an individual person, it would be an insufferable bore.
It would, we think, be Donald Trump. Everything would be the ‘best’ and ‘huge’, and no one would be able to match his greatness.
If the Aussie economy were a sports team, it would be Steve Waugh’s Australian cricket team of the 1990s and 2000s. It would win everything, and do so with such arrogance that even Aussies began to wish the team ill.
We bring this up after bumbling into an article by Ross Gittins in today’s Age. Warning. If you’re of the realist disposition when it comes to economics, you may wish to put down any sharp objects or hot liquids, for fear of injuring yourself or others.
The ‘second coming’ has happened. Jesus is here. And he is ensconced in a dreary building in Martin Place, Sydney, running the Reserve Bank of Australia.
