There was a a huge injection of funds to increase the firepower of the international financial institutions so that they can prop up emerging economies and support trade as well as a recognition of the shift in global power that we are currently experiencing with the rise of China and India.

Just wondering...

Does anyone DARE use the term "welfare state" any more?

Anyway. We should be eternally grateful to J.W. Howard (and various meeja personalities) for taking the time to protect us from those seedy boat people. They were an unacceptable threat to our values and way of life. They were going to destroy the Australian dream. Thanks John.

Still the lucky country.
