Quote for the Day

Billionaire retailer Gerry Harvey of Harvey Norman fame, on 60Minutes last night: 
“Why are we so scared about getting this virus? There’s pretty much nothing to get scared of. It’s not the Spanish Flu that killed 15 million people just after the First World War … I’m 80, I should be really scared. Guess what? I’m not really scared.

You know, this is an opportunity. Our sales are up in Harvey Norman in Australia by nine per cent on last year. Our sales in freezers are up 300 per cent. And what about air purifiers? Up 100 per cent.”
It is no doubt true as regards profits being up in the midst of panic buying, people losing jobs and businesses failing, but should it be said?
