Economists at UnNews state that this works out to an imperceptible 0.4 percentage points of growth each year. They are unable to state, "compared to what." They did not know how Australia achieved the effect, nor did Mr. Hockey specify, but they noted that, if Australia would do it ten times over, it might turn into something perceptible.
Moreover, like the rest of the world, these staff economists were unaware that Australia had a treasurer named Joe Hockey in the first place. Nor could they contemplate what would happen if the economics "boys" get "chippy" down on the ice (of which There Isn't Any in Australia), and least of all what will happen if the respective economies fall short of the target and Mr. Hockey should "drop the gloves."
To be fair, U.S. President Barack Obama, currently the prisoner and premium meal plan of pod-person Xinping XI on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, has given comparable assurances that the middle "class" will save $2,500 on health care, will not see any new taxes, and if they like their existing plan they can keep it.
