ABC embedded in existing growth oriented economic paradigm

A recent interview of the Prime Minister by Leigh Sales in the 7.30 Report on Tuesday 29 January 2019 provided a good illustration of the lack of understanding of economics by ABC journos or their deliberate and calculated rejection of some simple truths.

Please consider the following demonstrable facts and follow the inevitable conclusion.
