Australia needs some German drive

It's obvious that neither the government nor Coalition has a long-term strategy for Australian manufacturing, and they would do well to cast an eye over Germany's policies.

All the noise over the government giving $34 million to Ford, and GM Holden seeking $200 million from taxpayers to maintain its operations in Adelaide, is a microcosm of the disaster that passes for Australian industry policy and strategic planning. Bailouts do not create a sustainable manufacturing industry, they just delay the inevitable.
