What cargo cultists are doing to Australia

by John Grover

“With her vast reserves of coal and other minerals, Australia has the potential to become one of the great mineral-exporting countries of the world.  Yet this dream is far from being realised.  Today, crippled by monstrous taxes and plagued by strikes, many of Australia’s once great mining companies are barely able to survive.  At the same time, Australia is progressively pricing itself out of the international market.  Why is this happening?  Who is to blame?
In providing the answers to these questions, The Struggle for Cargo pulls no punches.  With ruthless honest, John Grover has laid bare what he considers to be the main cause of Australia’s deep-rooted malaise.  He sees a country threatened by too-powerful bureaucracy, hampered by ignorance and inefficiency, corrupted by greed.”
