If I were elected to office …
I’d reform the digital media communications space by allocating a dedicated digital TV and digital radio channel to the reporting of interest rate speculation. So called economic ‘experts’ could interview each other endlessly about whether and why interest rates will go up, go down or stay the same. There could be interest rate smack downs between the ‘going up’ experts and the ‘going down’ experts, with arm-wrestling contests, and GDP trivia quizzes to decide the winner. Hours of entertainment for the interest rate junkies.
Meanwhile over on conventional media, reporting of interest rates would be legislatively restricted to one day a month when the reserve bank board meets, in a speculation free zone. Vote 1. Me.
