The Treasurer's slide slow

First, credit where it is due from Stephen Koukoulas:

"Australian Treasurer Wayne Swan, Finance Minister Lindsay Tanner, RBA Governor Glenn Stevens and Treasury Secretary Ken Henry should arrange a celebratory get-together at Timmy's Kitchen in Manuka, Canberra. Over a selection of Shantung chicken, prawn chow mien (with crispy noodles - what else), an obligatory beef and black bean and a bottle of Oyster Bay sauvignon blanc (helping out our kiwi cousins on that), they can discuss what went right. They have every right to be thrilled with the way they have engineered an early cycle soft landing for the economy at a time when the world has been through the deepest and darkest recession in about 75 years."
