The desire to continue being 'a country that makes things' is mistake for politicians, business leaders and workers which will impoverish many for the benefit of a foreign few, writes Stephen Kirchner.

It is no coincidence the federal government is increasing its existing multi-billion dollar subsidies to the car industry at the same time it is increasing the tax burden on the mining sector.

Price signals from global markets are telling Australian labour and capital to reallocate resources out of manufacturing industries characterised by excess supply and into commodities, where there is excess demand.
