Treasury will today open the government books to give the public a deeper look into the Crown's accounts, and whether parties can actually fund their policies.The Chief Economist at ANZ, Cameron Bagrie, says the concern is what the books will look like three to four years ahead. "If I have a look at the broad spirit of where the numbers are going to be, they're going to be in pretty good shape," he says.
