This is not confined to a "CASA problem" or an aviation issue, it is across many sectors of the economy. It is a cultural problem which for various sociological reasons relating to history, design or accident, infects this country
Couldn't agree more! I am just back from a month in Europe. Australians, particularly australian bureaucrats, have absolutely no idea of how irrelevant they are to the rest of the world, how stupid are their concerns and how destructive their regulations are to the Australian economy.

case in point; the entire CASA system and its practices, penalty rates in a regulated labor force, the entire "australian standards" boondoggle that drives up prices, etc., etc. new businesses cannot be started and existing ones cannot grow.

we need to take an axe to regulation across the country.
