'Talking Down The Economy': Guess Who!

Simon Crean - Shadow Treasurer

Media Statement - 10 May 2001

John Howard was asked today:

JOURNALIST: Do your have any concerns at the possible takeover of Fosters or any response to Kim Beazley saying that because the Australian dollar is so low Australian assets are bargain basement now?

●

PRIME MINISTER: He'll take advantage of anything to sort of talk the Australian economy down. I think it's appalling he that he does that. ●

Really? Well who said this in January 1996?

The low Australian dollar is not just a symptom of our problems, it has also served to make Australian assets cheaper for foreigners to purchase. ●

GUESS WHO! Authorised by Geoff Walsh, 19 National Circuit, Barton ACT 2600.
