    Default RTE Economic Analysis by PWC

    A recent report attempts to show RTE's contribution to the economy in 2011.

    http://static.rasset.ie/documents/ab...-an-impact.pdf

    On the plus side, at least RTE are making an attempt to show they have some use.

    On the negative, the report is referenced against the drop in revenues since 2007 - I despair when entities continue to use boom era comparables. Show stats from before 2007 and maybe it will engender some support.

    But then this is p.ie....

    "Rte contributed €384m to the economy in 2011"

    Lol

    Pure propaganda produced by the "our friends" in PWC, low grade propaganda at that,

    Using this logic, the DSW contributes €20 billion a year to the enonomy, yay

    RTE are a drag on the economy, all they do is take money off people at the point of a gun and provide them with services they dont want. They contribute to the economy in the way a protection racket does I guess.

    It is hard, even for a collection of brazen shysters in suits like PWC to describe the racket of extorting 160 euro out of families who cannot afford groceries, and giving it to a collection of nepotists in a quango, as "a contribution" to the economy.

    But like any firm of gombeen professionals who benefit from state contracts, PWC must try. They know where their bread is buttered.

    It's not the same logic at all. Without defending some of the shennanigans in RTE, they do produce/re-sell a consumable product (programming) and provide employment. They also sell advertisement time, some of which is positive for our balance of trade.

    Lets get a referendum on privatising RTE - with those kind of "contribution" figures we should be able to make a fair whack out of it.

    Wrong, if rte wasn't there with its monopolistic position, the advertisers would simply give the revenue to independent stations, who would be far more creative and efficient than rte are,

    And anyway, rte import more programmes then the sell, way more,

    If rte had never existed, there would be room in the Irish market for four or five quality Indepentents,

    Is the €384 m, what was trousered by La Finucane, Turgidy, Duffy, etc.?
