Cause we have 'clowns' running the government
Why do you think anyone will have to go without? Any other country can produce what china is producing now, but china can't produce (to the same quality) what the rest of the world can produce. China needs stuff from the rest of the world much more then what the rest of the world needs from china.
I don't understand how China has so much money left over after the amount that they pour in to the ABC and the ALP.
China has no money.. they only have gold bullion bars
I want a carbon frame, dual suspension enduro/trail MTB prefer 27.5" but will take a 29er.
Now, by the time Australia can set up the factories and suppliers of all the components that can can compete with the Chinese suppliers and component manufacturers and match their quality (which is very good if you go top end) and price I'll probably be looking for a wheeler-walker instead.
The bottom line, we're not manufacturers. We're good at growing things and digging holes in the ground.
It's a big world, this is the time for Australia to be setting up other export markets all over the world except China. We should also be building some gas fired power stations and using our natural gas to give the country cheap reliable electricity. And building at least two oil refineries.
The Chinese Communist Party declared war on Australia this week. We need to act accordingly and to begin re-industrialising and establishing new trade and security partnerships. We are in a cold war with a very powerful enemy.
I'm not taking sides here.. but I think China is reacting to 'conehead' Dutton's comments on Independent inquiry of covid-19....covid-19 has been declared by WHO that it never was 'man-made' virus and Trump (and Pompeo) has never provided proof of such claims of Wuhan's virus.. as always, BS with no substance
No, because there is more demand for metallurgical coal overseas than in Australia. Shopping locally is a roadmap to poverty.
That's not my problem now is it. I want cheap grass fed Rib eye steak and lobster, but that's not your problem. Some people win and some people lose. For now you might be better off, but tomorrow i might be better off.
No reason why we can't also be a world class manufacturing country. Remember china and Japan once was not a manufacturing country.
There's many reasons. Most of them are in Canberra.
But if that were to burn down? Any reasons then?
Hang on a sec, you said:
What you should've said was:
I don't need to remind you that value is subjective.
My recommendation is T-bone by the way, or even just the sirloin (porterhouse). More flavour. We used to use the rib fillet in our steak burgers, but serve T-bone/porterhouse/rump as main meals.
So you're advocating Cabinet adopt a war time mentality? What did they call that in post-war Japan, I can't remember, the window something?
They've already driven a lot of innovators and entrepreneurs offshore. Probably need some big incentives to bring those back. Lower corporate taxes, no minimum wage, less employment red-tape, lower income tax ... etc.
Now that is a very funny post.
Yes they can, but it's not what we want to buy.
They have found their market segment, and we eat it up.
We want their cheap shit - so we can have more of it..... bigger TV's, new appliances, shiny material disposable crap.... they didn't get rich without selling.
I mean FFS, I went to buy tomato paste today, and WTF is this!!?? :
If that were true, we'd still be a world class manufacturing country.
Yep there's a few UN and trade treaties we'd have to tear up first to achieve this.
Others may want cheap dog food, but i for sure don't. And as mmm...shiney already mentioned, i couldn't give a dam what others want. The only can tomatos i buy are San Marzano tomatoes, which cost about 3-4x more then normal can tomatoes.
Things happen in cycles.
Well, being employed in Oz manufacturing for my whole working life - I applaud you, and wish more did the same.
However, you are part of a very small minority in this country.
