Comments from Brian Hartzer, head of local big bank Westpac:

  • Says he doesn't see Australia slipping into recession
  • Growth to be subdued

Bloomberg with the headline. I'm not sure what venue/event he is speaking at. I know for sure he isn't behind the counter at my local branch.


Not slipping ... what then ... plunging, collapsing, diving ... any of those work?

(OK, carry on. Never mind my muck-raking)
