I don't think Chris's broader point can be as easily dismissed as some would like. We haven't begun to see the full financial pain caused by the pandemic due to the money the federal government has been pumping out, but this can't last forever.
We basically have placed a massive bet on Keynesian economics that we hope will pay off. If it doesn't though, the health effects of the virus on society will likely pale into insignificance in comparison to the economic effects of the response that are yet to come.

I think it's hard not to contrast the "second wave" experienced between that in Vic, and that in NSW and QLD though. Sure the latter two have had the advantage of seeing what has happened in Vic first, but they have successfully employed the sharp and targeted tool of contact tracing and quarantining cases to suppress the virus, which was always the strategy here in Australia, whereas the Vic government failed in this most fundamental part of the response and therefore has had to use the very blunt and indiscriminate tool of hard lock downs to suppress it, which has then also had the additional flow on effects of longer and stronger border closures across the rest of the country as well.

Spot on!

Still doesn't really say whose idea it was, or who had the final say..  Only that Ashton had a preference for security..
