From Bernard Hickey in the Herald:
Floating an idea that you don’t really believe in is never a good idea.
This is a great quote, completely true.
I also think he makes good points discussing Goff’s chat on tax and inflation policy.
Update: Dim Post makes a good point on the “framing” of policies, and how justifications for policies can seem inconsistent. This is why economics is awesome in my opinion 😀
