The electorate has spoken, but Turnbull's speech shows he hasn't listened : Comments

By Saul Eslake, published 18/8/2016

In reality, he has more in common with the Bahamasí Shaunae Miller, the runner who only just fell across the line to win her race at the Rio Olympics.

Jobs and growth.
Growth is the problem, or at least uncontrolled growth is, particularly population growth.
More growth equals more Environmental destruction.
The Environment is what keeps us alive.
No healthy Environment, no us.

Turnbull is a sick joke that only the Liberal party does not get.

If we must be ruled by the "Dandy-Set" in Canberra, then it is refreshing to note, the people have spoken well, for all that goes before the collection of ruling Clowns, will now be subjected to stall and delay.
Very good I say. The less power, the safer we are!

Hardship is acceptable Saul, just as long as it's not you or I and the privileged sector asked to accept it!

We have choices that include increases in the Granny killing GST or withdrawing funding (5-6 Billion) from public schools and public health!

All while we ignore the 70 billions plus a year we'd save or reassign just by removing the one tier of entirely non essential government; namely, money wasting state governments, whose service and amenity provision could be supplied by a combination of Federal and local government, without necessarily increasing their current level of underworked salaried officials or financial resources? With just one exception, we are the most over governed country on the planet!

Don't get me started on endemic tax evasion, super, negative gearing, family trusts and offshored H.Q's. Or the financial advisors who aid and abet those examples or outcomes!

The electorate may well have spoken Saul, it's just not Turbull with a tin ear!? Just most pollies and opinionated economists? Put ten economists together in the same room and you'll invariably get thirty different opinions?

WOW, This is the first time I have seen the depopulation agenda pushed in Australia. Funny how these things role out from the US to other countries. I bet my short and curleys that its not incidental either.

We cannot have real growth with this present debt money creation system. James Rickards was involved in the negotiations for the bailouts of bankers in 2008. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jI-t3ViTPk4 Rickards notes that after we went off the gold standard in 1971,the bankers started to create money far in excess of real growth. The bankers created it as debt,thus debt like compound interest grew exponentially until now. So exponentially more debt money must be created now ,to pay for the debt of yesterday.

The private central bankers cannot increase interest rates because they have inflated all assets to the point of instant collapse if they do so.Even 0.25% threatened interest rate increase last January saw the share market seriously fallThey cannot increase rates because our whole over inflated bubble of shares and property will collapse.

Currently the Global Debt of over $200 trillion is 3 times the GDP of the planet and cannot be repaid. The Bond market has $13 trillion of negative yields.Even if the try to have debt jubilee our super funds have bought the debt obligations as worthless Govt bonds.

It has been 8 yrs since the GFC and the next collapse will totally devastate all Western economies. I 'm reading on the alternate media finance that it starts early October 2016 or early next year.This will be bigger than the Great Depression because of all the debt, $trillions in gambling derivatives and Western economies who have devastated their manufacturing base at the behest of the Globalist Agenda of one world Government.

Globally the debt is now 3 times the GDP of the planet and can never be repaid. If they have a debt Jubilee and wipe it out, this means pension funds will lose most of their value.Catch 22 again.
