You can't just leave out Gillard... whether you're for or against her does not change the fact that she was one of Australia's past Prime Ministers.

According to a recent report by super fund research body Rainmaker, Australians paid a record $18.6 billion in fees to their superannuation fund over the year to June, about four times the amount households paid in bank fees.

comparing banking and superannuation fees isn't really meaningful. this isn't to say that the amount of fees paid isn't too high.

what do you mean 'greatest'. because someone can be 'great' and still be a complete right-wing asshole. eg john howard and work choices. and rudd's png policies.
still though, id go for rudd- the sorry speech and his pro-gay stance. also he pulled straya through the 08 gfc and also made the AUD really really strong through that mining stuff.

Strong AUD hurts our exports. ruddy didn't pull australia out of the GFC, it was the policies in place YEARS before and the Australian mining industry that kept australia economically healthy. Rudd just took all the credit because he was there at the right time, same with him taking credit on the relationship with china when it was established by howard in the first place.

Yeah because Obama's stimulus package got america out of the GFC right? Stimulus plan's don't work at all. only type of stimulus that works is tax breaks/cuts and that's about it. If China wasn't so resource hungry Australia would've joined the rest of the world.

The stimulus package undeniably helped (or, at the very least, didn't hinder) in the short run, but it probably didn't 'save' our economy.
