True, but it is better to have real natural resources than the imaginary industry that the UK relies on - Finance.

All of those financial transactions have no real value, only the value that people place on them at the time. Atleast natural resources have an ongoing usage, unlike imaginary finances that disappear in the blink of an eye.

I like it when Mr. Hockey said:

"You don't introduce new taxes when the economy is slowing. You don't go down the path of making it harder and not easier for Australian businesses."

Economic growth is not all about imposing taxes but include the overall health of the markets and consumer preferences.

Any signs of that long awaited predicted recession in Australia? Growth predicted for next year of 3% still looking good.

The UK came out of recession with an unexpected and not predicted 1% third quarter growth, that's Definately good news.:thumbsup:

Not to mention that much of the City of London is involved in out and out financial fraud on a massive scale. The bedrock of the British economy has been described as the world's epicentre of financial fraud.
