Goebbels Award

I am going to start the Goebbels award.
Each time I see something written which is soooo inaccurate that Joesph Goebbels would be proud of it then it will be awarded..

The inaugural winner is  Sinclair Davidson who attempts to say part of the rise in GDP is because of Government spending.

Now go to the National Accounts and they say the public sector actually detracted 0.5 percentage points from GDP growth.

Wow. He is asserting, in a kind of indirect way the exact opposite of what has actually occurred!

This shows how well the Goebbels technique is employed. He isn't spouting some falsehood from the rooftops alah Alan Jones. He is simply quietly slipping in the lie and then everyone accepts it.
