Wayne's World

Number One Bag has been cleaning out my closet, Eminem style, and stumbled across the following gem in my collection of trivial newspaper clippings:
"The financial markets are populated by a lot of immature, younger-type people who play with their computers and drive home in their Porsches, and who have no understanding of the of the human or economic dimensions of unemployment."
Who is this wild-eyed Trotskyite? None other than Wayne Swan, now Federal Treasurer, but quoted in 1994 when he was chairman of the ALP Caucus Economics Committee and not yet in the grip of his current delusion that the market must rule us all. 

Vale sense and sensibility.

  1. You are even more cynical than I am, NOB.

    I believe, given the times in which we live, one cannot be too cynical. :-(
