Another Budget With the Wrong Objective - Richard Denniss interviewed on BTalk
During this week's federal budget speech the Treasurer Wayne Swan promised to return the government coffers into surplus by 2012-13.

If things were going well wouldn't you invest for growth and run debt as part of that process. Why is running the country any different? In this episode of BTalk, Richard Denniss talks about the budget and whether we are missing out on growth opportunities through the fear of running into further debt.
