Well this weeks letter comes from Vicky, who is a new reader. Here is her question.
Hi GavinSo to paraphrase, She asks a big question about how sustainable the manufacturing sector, not only in Australia, but I dare say in most western societies. Have we taken globalisation too much, and what does that bring for the future.
Vicky here, I have been listening to your podcasts..FANTASTIC!!!!
As you were asking questions, to your guests, a question came up this evening with a long and dear friend about how she went out and spent $25.00 on a simple cotton nightie, so we asked "do we have a rag trade here in Australia any more or like many other manufacturing industries gone overseas. This raises a lot of questions on what manufacturing companies are still here, and will be here for our future?
It would be interesting where our country now stands in the way of supporting our economy and way of life, or are we heading for a total dependency on other countries through loosing our manufacturing sector.
l would be really interested to see what your other readers thought if you mentioned this .....
Let us know your thoughts?
