Australia 'stimlates' the dead

BBC:

The Australian government has admitted that cash hand-outs aimed at stimulating the economy have been sent to thousands of people who are dead.

The money was part of a multi-billion dollar package under which every tax-payer was entitled to a payment of up to A$900 ($700, £440).

About A$14m of the money went to dead people, ministers said, and A$25m to Australians living overseas.

Local media have dubbed the deceased recipients "the grateful dead".

The government defended the checks to the dead as still being stimulus because it can be spend by their estates. Meanwhile I am still waiting for my rebate stimulus from last year.
