Q & A "Fight of our lives" - When economic ideology meets biological system

On Australian ABC's Q & A, 28 July 2020, "Fight of our lives," Bill Bowtell[1] alone seemed able to conceptualise the biological restructuring of our economic environment, although Gigi Foster, economist, NSW, seemed to know instinctively what she needed to combat in order to keep the global, privatised economy going. She advocated allowing people to die from COVID-19, Swedish-style, in order to maintain business more or less as usual. However, when it was put to her that this would make everything less predictable and also incapacitate our health-care system, with no end in sight for the virus, she could draw a logical conclusion, which was, "[...] If we keep our borders closed, until there is a vaccine, we have to restructure the industrial mix in Australia." But this conclusion, anathema to her ideology, seemed ridiculous to her.

Going easy on foreign students for their fees?

Dr Gigi Foster says her statistical analysis reveals that international students are being allowed to underperform and this is being camouflaged to an extent by grade inflation. The dumbing-down of our universities is due to an over-reliance on foreign students, and they will eventually be victims of their own success in luring overseas dollars. Amanda Vanstone says students are getting a "free ride"?
