Hi Donald, how are the election preparations going? Keep your head down and give my regards to Pauline when you are next speaking to her.

Yes, Iím sure China will just sit there and take it, and not launch any of its own 300 nuclear weapons or ask itís ally Russia to launch any of its 6000 nuclear warheads against any other country, especially Australia which has become more intertwined with the US military empire with many US and Australian bases near major cities here potential targets.

Looks like the OP has gone to post on airliners to repeat this PPRuNe thread. (of course under another account name).

I was watching a documentary on what's actually involved in maintaining those missiles and warheads, it's a staggering cost. It's a fine line before they become more dangerous to you than their intended targets. Sorta makes you wonder just how much of the worlds nuclear arsenal is real. They have been sitting there a very long time.

Iron ore, coal, gas, grains, beef and wine well lets use them first
then sell the dregs overseas. Sure their will still be trade agreements
every country will pretty much tear up their agreements due to covid
and start from scratch. Thats my thought.
If manufacturing is something that will be mass produced, then forget it, you'll never be able to compete with the asians. It has to be a niche product that either will not be mass produced or not viable to produce anywhere else. For example Cadbury's in TAS, The amount of milk that is required each day makes it not viable to produce anywhere else.

Then we all should buy that $6 bar of Tassie chocolate, instead of that Aldi crap for $3. We should buy that $30 T-shirt aussie made than that $15 made in China.
If we don't then we have sold our sole. Just call us another province of China. Just as Dick Smith discovered.
That's the only thing I like about Trump, he wants to go back to manufacturing, create jobs, and reduce the junk that comes from China.

I agree with you, but then that falls into the domain of competition, "what is a viable business". Staple products and those businesses that are essential, that take years to develop, like fruit trees, dairy, In my opinion these products should not be imported at all, unless it's something we don't produce here. I have serious concerns about our premium products being exported, only to import a cheaper product that doesn't meet the same standards. Once the orchard is gone or the dairy farm closed, They can't be returned quickly and in some cases if at all.
P.S About meat, if it has a bone in it, it's ours, locally produced, if it's processed in a vacuum sealed package (no bone), it's most likely imported.
Because I have a direct pecuniary interest in those industries anything I say is deemed biased. So you be the judge and decide what's in the best interests of the nation.

My last spray on this issue, take yourself out to the regions sometime and seek out the real fruit juice, how it looks in the glass and how it tastes, check out a fresh free range eggs, the colour of the yolk and how much more body is in it. Maybe once you get the feel of what real and fresh is, you'll begin to get the picture of what you are really consuming from the supermarket.

That I would agree, I have plenty of chickens roaming around once you have a free range you will never go back.

The problem runs much deeper - the never ending expansion of the currency supply has meant prolonging the inevitable disaster of inflation by the mass importation of day to day goods from places like that, keeping living costs somewhat in check for the last 25 years or so.
The economy can't be unf*cked from this, and the powers that be just keep doubling down through more deficit spending and currency printing. We're sitting on the precipice of a hard reset and it's not going to be pretty when we fall.

And the pandemic provides a perfect opportunity for that hard reset. I agree with you it's not going to be pretty and the problem runs much deeper than just Airlines and Tourism.

Indeed - classic case of never let a good disaster go to waste. When it does it will be blamed on the pandemic. Honestly, most elected officials and the Government don't understand anything otherwise.

And that shouldn't come as a surprise, they are elected ordinary people like you and me. If you were elected and became a cabinet minister, you wouldn't be given the Minister for Aviation portfolio, because you know something about it. The public service on the other hand should be competent, qualified professionals and that is a problem like the EPA and the toothless tiger it is.

I think heís referring to a flat fish.

Manufacturing may start to trickle back to the new world counties by and by. I would pay a modest premium for anything not made in China. In fact, that has been my practice for a few years now, and will be for as long as they still allow wet markets. As bad as Covid-19 is, it is not the pandemic that the epidemiologists have been warning about for the last 20+ years. The next bat virus the Chinese send us might just be the real deal
