NBN Craziness

Burning money for national infrastructure

Henry Ergas has been writing many excellent articles on the NBN in The Australian. When will leading journalists actually hold the Prime Minister to account for this crazy wasteful, centrally planned folly?

The underlying principle is simple but powerful: what governments do not disclose, they have no mandate for. If the government wants a mandate for the NBN, it should publish the implementation report, fully disclose the projected spending requirements of the NBN and ensure that any NBN-related costs appear, transparently, on the books of NBN Co.

Until that is done, the NBN, whatever its merits, will remain seriously tainted.
