Yesterday morning, I spoke with 4BC Breakfast presenter Neil Breen about the Queensland Government’s Economic Recovery Plan, travel restrictions, deficits, and debt. The recording has been published on the 4BC website:
Neil began by asking me what is the Economic Recovery Plan document the Premier and Treasurer are always clutching during their press conferences? The 4BC website summarises my response as:
Former Treasury Official Gene Tunny says it’s just a prop and he’d rather see a full budget book.
The glossy does summarise a range of government initiatives designed to stimulate the economy, but I’d rather the Government have produced a full budget, or the Treasury to have released a Pre-Election Fiscal Outlook, a PEFO, as is standard practise at the federal level.
