What shape will the recovery be? A swoosh or a V?

Pessimists say the Kung Flu recovery will be a swoosh. We say it’s more likely to be a V. We’re no longer alone. And the power of the media: the AFP drops charges against Anneka Smethurst and Twitter changes from platform to publisher to fact check Trump. Two decisions that will be regretted.

Flogging a dead horse with heartstrings

GIGO – the experts’ $60 bn input error

The $60 billion JobKeeper screw-up was the result of two input errors: the ATO and Treasury estimated more businesses would need help than actually did, and they based their errors on the pessimistic forecast of epidemiologists like Dr Brendan Murphy who predicted Australia would become Italy.

The perfect and the good

The experts want COVID-19 dead but with each day it becomes clearer that the perfect is not just getting in the way of the good, it’s destroying lives. And the experts themselves – such as Queensland Chief Health officer Jeannette Young – may not be as pure as they make out to be. And don’t get us started on the latest Trump whistleblower in the US.
