Australian Car Industry Falters.

Where was the modeling?
I find it hard to fathom how the new federal Australian government would decide out of hand that it need not aggressively lobby and quantify a level of cost effective support to struggling industries like the car makers. They ought to have been continually fine tuning economic models given the impact of things like free trade agreements with the USA, South Korea & Japan who are competitive sites for manufacture by the same players. The exchange rates, the economics of scale in supply, manufacture & distribution are all quantifiable Independant variables – I am sure that those companies pulling out had their models. So their probable decisions should have been anticipated via our own models and cost effective interventions planned. Given that out dollar is sure to weaken soon, get back in the ring and fight! Do the modeling, look at their models, calibrate workable interventions & offer them.
