VIC government, Toyota, GM Holden, Mortein, Westpac, UBS says 4000 finance sector jobs to go Have we just hit the wall? I'm watching The Business on the ABC and it looks like Australian industries are collapsing! Except they did say Gold is going to over $2500 an ounce. I listened to the head of GM Holden today making the case for why the Australian government needs to keep up its $1.5B in annual subsidies. (what! That was the first I heard of that amount) This isn't looking good for Australia and the AUD has climbed to $1.07. Hello Julia, are you home?
