Posted November 01, 2018 06:32:37 The Australian financial crisis was a tragedy for Australia.
It was also a crisis for the people of Australia.
The crisis was caused by the policies of our government.
The policies of the Coalition Government were to provide tax breaks for millionaires.
That was the Liberal Party’s policies.
The policy of the Labor Party was to make sure that people were able to retire on their own and to have a modest standard of living.
It is the policy of Labor to have an income tax rate of up to 45 per cent, the highest in the developed world.
That is the Coalition’s policy.
That policy has created the biggest welfare dependency on the poor and middle class of any major economy in the world.
It has created enormous hardship and enormous pain for Australian families and their children.
But the tragedy is that the policies that led to this crisis were the policies in place when the banks collapsed in 2008.
When the banks went bust, the Labor Government was in office.
When they got into power, the policies they put in place were not good policies.
They were not policies that were good for Australia or for the economy.
They created enormous inequality and enormous hardship.
They destroyed the confidence of millions of Australians.
And when we look back at what happened after the crisis, the policy failures and the policies we did not adopt, that was the tragedy.
The lessons learned during the last two and a half years of Labor government are that it is impossible to build a new economy, especially if you are not prepared to accept the responsibility of a crisis and the sacrifices that come with that.
It’s a terrible tragedy that we are still living with a crisis.
There is a real opportunity to rebuild our economy, to build our prosperity and create a better future for our children and grandchildren.
There was a real chance for us to recover from this economic catastrophe, to rebuild the economy, and to rebuild trust in our politics, and in the public sphere.
It may be the last chance we will get.
What was your first experience of the crisis?
The first time I went into the Senate was when I was 18 years old, working in the Senate offices.
I was a young member of the party at the time, so that was my first exposure to the crisis.
I went to Parliament on the first day and sat on the floor of the House.
I sat there, watching people dying on the street.
My father sat there and I sat with him.
I stood up and said, “This is really happening.
This is happening.”
I said, I’ve been through something like this before.
“The first thing I did when I became an MP was to say, “I am going to get out of here.
“I went back to my job.
And I did not leave the party for five years.
I stayed there for 18 years.
What are your thoughts on the policies and the actions of the previous Labor government?
There are a lot of people who have made a career of complaining about these policies.
But we had a policy which was actually very progressive.
The Greens, the Greens, led the way in saying that you have got to pay the debts that people have been paying on their debts.
We got that policy through the election.
We did not have the Labor-Greens coalition government for five and a quarter years, and it was a very good policy.
It produced a lot for people.
It made the debt of people less burdensome.
We went through the debt crisis of 2007-08 with a very progressive policy, and we did have the debt to GDP ratio at its highest point since World War II.
But at that time, the debt was in the mid-30s.
When you look at the current financial crisis, it’s very clear that it’s going to be a lot worse than it was in 2007-8.
What does the Government need to do to get us out of this financial crisis?
Well, it is very clear to me that the Government needs to do the following things: 1.
Get our economy back on track, which it is.
The economy of the future is going to have to be about more than just financial performance.
It needs to be based on people being able to buy their own home, their own house, and their own car, and making the transition to a greener economy.
That’s the only way we are going to build that future.
That means that the economy will have to get back on the right track.
Reform our welfare system, so it’s fairer, so people don’t have to sacrifice their future for the sake of the next five or six years.
That has to be the Government’s focus.
Create a culture that people want to live in.
That requires a strong social contract.
We have to have that.
But also we need to get a culture of fairness that means people are not treated unfairly because of their wealth.
Create more jobs.
The Government has done
