I have an article at the conversation on the battler between taxpayers and the manuocrats.
What is a manuocrat? They are the modern equivalent of the physiocrats. However, while the physiocrats believed agriculture was the source of all wealth, manuocrats believe manufacturing is the source of all wealth. They believe manufacturing needs support from the government and they are happy for the government to raid the taxpayers’ pocket to get that help. And my fear is that the next year will be a golden time for the manuocrats as the lead up to the federal election creates the perfect environment for them to milk the public purse.
