Another “Plan” from Gillard

RESOURCE and infrastructure giants will be told to spend more heavily with local manufacturing companies in a Gillard government plan due within weeks to aid struggling industries amid fears of a wave of further job layoffs. I presume that plan is in conjunction with her other plan that made products made by local manufacturing companies more expensive due to union control of the workforce, higher utility charges for the green dream and more regulation. Yeah…that must be it.

  • Looks like sheer genius to me, not only will it inflate the cost of major projects (by forcing companies to buy locally rather than let them buy on the open market) and adding more documentation and admin costs, but could also be viewed by foreign competitors as a form of tariff and invite retaliation.
    What could possibly go wrong with this plan?
