What do you see as the major problems with the economy?
Well, obviously the down turn in the mining industry and the high Australian dollar have been major problems… We hoped that housing construction would take up the slack….
So are we too dependent on mining and agricultural exports?
We are very good at building houses….
But who is going to live in these houses?
Hairdressers and baristas are doing well….
What about our manufacturing industry?
I have great respect for our manufacturing industry… Pental, Jimmy Possum, Spring Gully…Who?
Well, Holden, Toyota, WD & HR Wills...
