A Gaelic debt lesson for Mr Hockey

Our country is supposed to be 'open for business', but Joe Hockey can't help sending negative signals to global markets about the state of Australia's finances. It's a purely political strategy but hardly a worldly one.

“Invest in Australia, where things are quite likely not to go pear-shaped!”

That’s the message being sent loud and clear to global markets by opposition-Treasury-spokesman-cum-Treasurer Joe Hockey. He still doesn’t seem sure which of those two jobs he’s doing.
