  1. GDP is apparently overstated hmmm most of the ABS data has been pumped up under this govt.
    Next National Accounts sets to show a sobering tale – unless pumped.

  2. Mark – number three was one to stumble over, you have to remind yourself what is NOT given in the question, it’s taken me a long time to remember that.
