Last week, our intrepid Prime Minister followed up his earlier neo-con blame game with another essay, yet again hammering his favorite target: prosperity.
Yes, prosperity is evil!
Prosperity is to blame for our current ills!
According to His Ruddness, the cause of the GFC is prosperity:
"The roots of the crisis lie in the preceding decade of excess. In the past decade, the world enjoyed an extraordinary boom. Living standards rose faster than at any time in recent memory. Global economic growth reached a peak of 5.1 per cent in 2007, the highest global growth rate in more than three decades."Damn prosperity! Damn it to hell!
