Husic's IT price inquiry ultimatum

The man spearheading the fight against the"price gouging" by tech giants explains why things need to change for the better.

There's been a lot of talk about the way the rising Aussie dollar is ratcheting up the pressure on currency sensitive industries, like manufacturing. This sector in particular has been forced to grit its teeth while bearing the brunt of a double barrelled whammy: drying export sales combined with tough competition from cheaper imported product.

In Chifley - the electorate I represent in Western Sydney - manufacturing keeps nearly 10,000 people in jobs.  So the upward movement in our dollar isn't always greeted cheerfully.
