    You are right B-dos
    There is poor management throughout many areas of business in Australia
    There are a few exceptions though and hopefully the rest can learn from them

    you may be right baz

    i may be wrong baz but unfortunately here in australia we have very poor management. whereas overseas they have very good managemnet. taxation, IR and regulation thankfully have nothing to do with it

    Where exactly overseas do they have IR laws and regulations that you consider very good?

    You didnt answer anything.
    That is my opinion .Do you need me to post it again?
    I suppose I should be flattered that you can't tell my opinion from one of an expert ..but Im not sure thats such a great endorsement of my writing skills.

    Contray to the pattern here,I actually posted the link to an article -which I read - and then formulated my own opinion on the matter ,and posted it .
    If you need me to post it again I can..but it seems like you havent got anything else so it might look like thread bombing

    you mentioned what you think the CSIRO seem to think

    then waffled on about current/future opportunities in manufacturing

    not once have you offered anything to counter the view i put forth that you said was wrong.

    so can you? or does the extent of your critical thought end with womens issues and man bashing?

    Sweetheart? That's me I think. So I'll give it a crack.

    In comparison to developing nations, Australia has had prohibitive wages for as long as I can remember. Wage comparison is absolutely a factor, but this has been a static factor for a long time.

    I'd suggest that the change that we are seeing now is a result of changes in other countries. Increasing peace and stability and the creation of infrastructure where there previously was none, has created the opportunity for companies to take their production and manufacturing to countries that were previously seen as too much of an investment risk. (political upheaval, war, nationalization of resources etc).

    good point re the improving conditions in some of the subject countries SBD

    however (and we are talking about the past few decades, not just the last 5 or 10) australian wages remain high by international standards despite being flat for a while

    also things like rent, and other costs of employment, regulation and the cost of importing raw material and shipping finished goods all make it (often) prohibitively expensive to do business here.
