THE real problem is our belief system … because …
LAST NIGHT ON 7.30 PwC Chief Economist, Jeremy Thorpe … at about 4.30 minutes into the report … talked about:
-creating a growth economy not fortress Australia
-that the growth economy largely based on immigration will put us back on track quicker, and will generate billions more
ISN’t it a shame these so-called policy influencers seem to still …
-believe in the ‘trickle down’ economy
-believe in the forever growth economy
These rusted on capitalists seem to have failed to understand it is:
-not always about them and their precious never-ending desires for more
–the Earth’s resources are finite despite their best efforts to deny this reality
IT was quite clear the battle-lines are already being drawn to counter some of the prevailing views following the failures of our current structures to deal with a major health, social and economic problem caused by an imported virus
These opportunists see it as their duty to warn against Australia turning … to pivot in a direction:
–away from being completely open to the whims of foreign markets, companies and foreign governments
-that differentiates us, that we can chart a course that is about doing things for ourselves
-and not being so reliant on overseas supply chains for just about everything!
They infer dangers lie ahead if we do, even using the label ‘fortress Australia’ links any such thoughts -with a negative sentiment
–suggestive of xenophobia
-less valuable…and so on
BUT what about those who think otherwise?
THE 7.30 report didn’t cover a point of view that explained what would happen if Australia did more for itself, that there may be merits derived from having a more modest immigration intake, where was the balance?
-earlier reports about a wealthier smaller Australia
–a clever Australia investing in itself, that it’s not just about
.digging holes in the ground
.educating foreign students
.selling our domestic housing to foreigners
.selling anything and everything we once owned to foreigners; the money that flows in
.not being clean and our government not showing any interest in knowing about it
.that our real estate continues to be an international hotspot for money launderers and still it seems THAT is being tolerated … (Real Estate Gatekeepers exemption from Anti-Money Laundering Laws October 2018)
THAT IT CAN BE ABOUT DOING … MAKING … CREATING HERE IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY!
