The economy is being trumpeted by the Government in lieu of their negative poll results. Treasure Peter Costello set the tone early last week, referring to Australia’s ‘trillion dollar’ economy on a number of occasions. Later that week, in a televised debate with Shadow Health Minister Nicola Roxon, assistant federal Health Minister Christopher Pyne repeated Costello’s take on the ‘trillion dollar’ economy.

Asked this week for his opinion on why the polls were so bad for the Government, the Prime Minister said it was because the electorate is being led by Labor in to falsely believing that this ‘trillion dollar’ economy runs by itself.

Should we be in awe of the Government’s feat in sustaining this juggernaut?
