Budget


As expected the budget did not result in any brilliant policy decisions. Three main themes can be identified:

1) A continuing obsession with the deficit and debt;
2) A focus on consumerism – boosting growth is good!;
3) The environment – despite more evidence of human induced climate change which eventually could lead to the end of life as we know it – ignored. Consume more, travel more – just carry on regardless!
