Once upon a time the Productivity Commission was staffed by the best and brightest people doing rigorous and impartial analysis. However like a lot of supposed consumer advocacy groups (including Choice & CALC) it has been hijacked by people with rigid ideological viewpoints who compromise their organisation's integrity by tailoring "analysis" to support their personal agenda. Consumers are actually often worse off as a result.

The government and media needs to stop taking any notice of these groups. And in the case of the Productivity Commission (which is government funded) just shut it down.
