"I think we are getting off topic here. If Joe Hockey and the banks merits so much discussion, shouldn't we open a thread for him/them "Can Joe Hockey add up?"; "When is an Audit not an Audit?"; "How much bank profits can the public support?"; and "Where will the banks turn for a profit after the public have nothing left to give?""
NullaNulla, Good idea. thread started.
We will see the usual "free market economy" statements but they should be tempered by the fact that we are a captive audience and held that way by government policy. For example Medibank Private only pay refunds into a bank account as do a lot of businesses and government departments. We will hear that you have a choice of banks. Yes, you do the greedy and the greedier.
