G20 Summit on Medicare co-payments

What must the world leaders have thought as Aussie PM Tony Abbott starting talking about the difficulty he’s faced introducing a $7 co-payment for doctors’ fees?

And how annoyed must Tony have been when Ban Ki Moon suggested that his 2% global economic growth target shouldn’t be at the cost of rising inequality.
We discuss the G20 in this week’s Balls Radio, along with lots of other good stuff:
This week’s running order:
- G20, it’s all about money
- What, renewable energy?

What is Balls Radio?

Balls Radio is like talk radio, but for thinking people. Now a short daily occurrence, Phil Dobbie offers his opinions on what's happening, in the UK and overseas: politics, social policy, economics, science, religion. Yes, it's another, slightly overweight middle-aged white man telling the world how it should be. But there's nothing alt-right about Balls Radio. And we try and have fun along the way.
