Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Philip Lowe.

The merry gathering of neoliberals that is the Financial Review's Business Summit has provided some entertainment this week. Business luminaries have stroked their chins, scratched their pates and furrowed their brows about how they can better sell the idea of company tax cuts to Australians, with some even suggesting that they try convincing people that they're not a pack of greedy self-servers first.

Today, Malcolm Turnbull will show up and present the genius idea of linking company tax cuts to free trade agreements. Yep, good idea Prime Minister, free trade has such a great reputation with voters, that'll turn the whole argument around.
