As the first move in an act of economic hari-kiri, tomorrow Australia unsheathes the big knife, ready to disembowel itself (economically).
Yep! The Carbon Tax.
Mine Host, like many, had little clue about how much damage this tax was going to do.
Then yesterday one of his suppliers drops by the office for an informal chat. This man is very worried, & with good reason.
The product supplied by this man, a non-saleable item for which there is no alternative, currently costs the Wayside Tavern $20,000 per year.
Tomorrow that price rises to One Hundred and Seventy Thousand Dollars per year.
