You’ll find no argument in the Crikey bunker if you want to argue that corporate Australia is subject to fairly toothless regulation. The analysis presented by economist John Adams on the ABC, alleging that less than 1% of complaints received by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) are investigated, is certainly a shocking stat. But this isn’t the first time the ABC went to Adams for comment — and it didn’t go nearly so well the last time.
