Harvey Backs out of Debate with Kogan

Posted: 24 Aug 2010

As you know, the consumer electronics industry is going through a lot of change at the moment. Online businesses are now the ones giving customers the most value.

In the interest of the Australian consumer electronics industry moving forward, I proposed a debate between myself and Gerry Harvey on the issues faced by the industry.

He has chickened out of this debate.

A national TV broadcaster was very keen on running the debate. I agreed to the debate with no conditions other than it be live and uncut. Gerry Harvey took a while to respond, and then declined, saying that the only reason Kogan are able to keep prices down is by not spending money on TV advertising, and that because of this he wouldn't accept the challenge.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like this debate will happen. We'll keep doing what we do best and ensuring Australians always get the best value, and I'm sure educated customers will make the right choice.

If the debate did go ahead, this is what we think it would have sounded like:



What do you think?

All the best,

Ruslan Kogan
