UNSW finance professor Dr Peter Swan says the government knows the “highly secret reports” into the cost of COVID-19 lockdowns are “very bad and very revealing”.
The Morrison government has classified a series of 38 documents into the economic cost of various COVID-19 restrictions as cabinet documents, preventing them from being made publicly available.
Dr Swan told Sky News the government knew “how damaging” these reports were which was why it decided to hide them.
“How many hundreds-of-billions of dollars have been lost unnecessarily, tens-of-thousands of jobs, and businesses closed as a result of unnecessary lockdowns,” he said.
“I’m sure the government knows but it wants to keep it a secret. They must presumably be very very bad and very revealing.”
