  1. Scott Murdoch in the Australian thinks the slowing Australian is responsible for a widening trade deficit by somehow lowering exports.


    My very faded Economics 101 notes suggest the effect of a domestic slowdown would be in the opposite direction (by lowering imports).

    The nation’s Great Broadsheet has not a clue about economics yet passes up no opportunity to lecture us all on the topic.

    God help us all.

  2. As Rudd wings his way to Bejing I have this Kissinger feeling that Hu Jing Bao or whoever in the Chinese leadership is going to ‘ask’ young Kevvy to help with this Olympic thang. Of course it will all be in Mandarin and lines could get crossed: ask might come out as misquoted.
    But next thing we hear our PM is extending his itinerary for a secret location across the alps.
    Far fetched? Probably but who else would the PRC leadership turn to in their hour of need as the torch heads for more fire extinguishers?
    And wouldn’t our Kev..from Australia…here to help … leap at the opportunity.

  3. I was curious about Joe’s post, but the link is broken.
    Fixed link (hopefully) is here.
