Australia is a 1 horse banana republic. Mines mines mines, that's the only thing holding Australia's economy together. How's this not a banana republic? The fact modern economists shrug their shoulders is proof of incompetence from the lot of them.
So, are you saying we shouldn't mine?

Australia's Mining has done wonders for its economy....so too has Australia's wonderful beaches, wild outback, the people, the animals, and its weather...yes not met a person yet who doesnt wanna go to Australia....tourism keeps us ticking...not to mention how many LARGE BUSINESSES EXECUTIVES wanting to set up business in Australia as they have huge pressure from their spouses and kids.....so banana republic it will never be

My complaint about Australia is its high wage and salary earning taxes and therefore its socialist govt that supports this....

I used to pay 50% income tax...half my wage went to some total waste of time family who sat all day watching cable, or blowing their brains on drugs... and with all the free schooling, university, english lessons, medical, nearly free public transport everywhere, living that Australia offers why cant they go better themselves....Im glad I was able to assist...but Im sorry we had so many freeloaders sucking the system....
