Tomorrow the government will finally bring down it’s much talked about 2012-13 budget. The ALP has somehow managed to make a nice little mess for itself about the supposed need to return to surplus and as a result, Wayne Swan must surely be losing his mind – and maybe even his seat if Clive Palmer gets his way.So many numbers, figures, projects, schemes and taxes to consider. What to cut? What to raise? Golly gosh it must have been budgetary bedlam down at the Treasury.
Not only that but last week the Reserve Bank also lowered interest rates by 0.5%, only increasing the public awareness about all thing monetary. NAB, Commonwealth and Westpac all passed on part of the cut and the ANZ will announce it’s intentions on Friday.
Phew! That’s a lot of finance. Frankly I think we need to take a step back, consider the bigger picture, raid the costume box and unleash some cartooning fun. Enjoy 🙂
