In our conversation, Steve and I and discussed points I’ve made in recent posts regarding the volatility and unreliability of royalties revenue and the challenge the Government faces in restraining expenditure growth enough to generate the surpluses it needs to achieve its fiscal strategy. Relevant recent posts include:
