Crying wolf

The gold medal for whingeing in 2013 has to go to Gerry Harvey, chairman of Harvey Norman.

He was in the news regularly through the year, whingeing about the tough times retail was having, the unfair competition from online shopping, that Aussies weren't spending, that it was the worst he'd experienced in all his years in business.

He's just announced Harvey Norman's half year results. Revenue up 3.6% at $2.99 billion, nett profit up 36% at $111.42 million.

Yep, times are tough, plenty to whinge about.
