While the ABC continues to tear itself into pieces trying to deal with Emma Alberici's pieces on company tax, other material slips through on the ABC site that is, even compared to the worst accusations levelled at the ABC's chief economics correspondent, more reckless.

This morning, a piece labelled "Analysis" and based on the Stan Grant program Matter of Fact, inquired "Does Australia have a 'zombie economy' that is at risk of a crash?" The piece was about 800 words, most of which were devoted to giving economist Steve Keen a platform to spruik his argument that the Australian economy is about to crash because of household debt.
