It’s not the rudeness, disparaging comments or thoroughly offensive antics of Judith Sloan that were at issue in the radio discussion I was involved in this morning on the economy, universities and other matters (listen here - http://tiny.cc/nsizaw ), it was the vacuous line that she took in discussing every issue.
Among the interruptions and bluster, Ms Sloan failed to mention any facts to support her assertions, and floundered over some very basic issues covering the mining tax, how to deal with any future global economic shock and fiscal policy. Quite astoundingly, her only answer when repeatedly questioned about what she’d do if Australia confronted another GFC type event was to cut wages. Not sure if that helps highly geared consumers or their banks or do much for the supply of labour either.
There were other issues she mentioned which on reflection had little factual support, but listen to the discussion and form your own views.
