I was watching Mr Denton last night (probably the best interviewer I have personally ever seen on my short time on earth), but I found this interview fascinating. Did any of you guys watch it and any thoughts?
He appears to still keep on top of the current environment, is very charismatic and humble. I particularly liked his part talking of how do the youth of today want to know about Paris Hilton, when energy and food prices are causing half the global population to live in a more precarious situation than ever before in our lifetimes. I also liked his advice on education and life long learning.
Only real part I have studied in-depth on him and his policies was his involement in the pilots dispute (in some junk Industrial Relations course I had to undertake at University). Along with his deregulation and privatisation.
He also floated the AUD, sold off CBA and lowered tariffs (creating a greater impetus towards free trade).
As I am young and don't remember too clearly his reign in power (kids or teenagers don't generally follow politics), what are your thoughts, opinions on him?
