    You need to get in touch with the DNA clinic, son, they’ve got some bad news for you.

    I saw that 6-second grab, and I have to say, your blog photo must be a bit out of date. You were far more hirsute than I expected (if that’s possible). Also, the way the story was written, it seemed to imply you were a conservative economist.

    “REPORTER: The conservative economist’s view still disturbing.JQ: It certainly wouldn’t be impossible to see petrol lat $1.50 a litre, or $2 a litre in 10 years’ time.”

    It’s just cyclical FF, the photo was straight after my haircut, the interview about two weeks after.

    Ah, yes, but can anyone predict the rate of growth/shedding of the common or garden economo-beard?

    $2 in 10 years time? Surely they could have got more of a rise out of you than that. You are a hard man.
