Ergas on Cost-Benefit of the NBN

“After all, once the resources are spent, they are gone forever: no chance then of ensuring that they are put to good use. That is why the project should be carefully assessed before it is irreversibly committed. But there is an even more important reason for persevering [with demands for a cost-benefit analysis]: in public life, rot spreads. What begins with half-truths ends with untruths. As the attempt to defend the indefensible overwhelms the duty to say it as it is, a culture of hypocrisy takes hold in which anything goes.” Extract from We can’t afford to opt for NBN without scrutiny | The Australian
