Ministers and Growth Rates: The Last 20 Years

This is what I could blog in 18 months when we go to the polls assuming we grow at 5% until then. As the table shows the average growth rate of the current government would barely fall short of 5% and certainly puts the so-called reform-induced robust growth performance into perspective: Sithanen will actually do worse than his first time around when... no reform was implemented.

And should we tag along at 3% instead it would yield the worse-performing mandate as far as that extremely limited economic statistic goes. But of course we won't go to vote in July 2010: it will be the World Cup Stupid!
