The week that was…

After the excitement of last week’s unexpectedly positive economic news, this week political writers returned to pondering the community’s distinct unwillingness to be heartened by them.

Colebatch remained pessimistic, Grog gave an insightful retrospective of the economy 40 years ago compared with today, and Pollytics updated his seminal work on the Great Unhinging. Poss also produced a great piece on the internal inconsistency that bedevils community opinion.

Kelly said it was time to lower the public’s expectations, while Grattan pointed out that trust had a lot to do with their unhappiness and Dunlop explained that it should be attributed to their lack of civic engagement and sense of powerlessness.

Kenny and Elder kept the light firmly fixed on Abbott’s negative campaign, while a small war broke out over blogging versus journalism.
