Australia's corporate regulator ASIC spends more than $100,000 on new font (abc.net.au)

No wonder ASCI has the well-proven reputation of being essentially useless as the Australian Royal Commission into Banks and Banking has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt (over many years, as the regulator, ASIC failed to stop the wholesale ripping-off of customers by the banks).

This wasted 100k could have been much better spent in protecting the thousands of little people from being ripped off by these large morally-corrupt corporate interests.

A terrible waste of money and an unmitigated disgrace.

The bastards who authorized this expenditure ought to fired.

So what font is it? And if this is a public agency, is the new font open source and free for the public to use?
