Hi, it is not new, but felt for quite some time, and it is getting worse: Consumer spending at its lowest since the 1990s !!! https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-11...-tax-cuts-rba-fail-to-boost-spending/11668912 Nothing Libs/Nats are doing will save us. People long lost the faith in our government, but choose to stay with the right wingers as Shorten wasn't liked. I forecast one thing, the longer Libs/Nationals do what they are best at, namely nada, we will become a banana republic. Not that I believe Labor would be much better. I strongly believe we need another direction, certainly away from coal, and away from that never ending economic growth dream. We need a different direction, away from the US, as we cannot and shouldn't help them out in future wars, as they most likely will be unjust again. Where would you want us to move to, which would be the key to get us out of this viscous circle of staying in the past and repeating the same mistakes all over again? Some even see us as a future Asian country, do you share those views? https://www.smh.com.au/world/asia/m...e-way-to-asian-influence-20191102-p536uu.html What is your dream? Reg.
