Re­source­ful Nor­we­gians

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

NOR­WAY has put aside vast sums of its North Sea oil rev­enue in­come to safe­guard that coun­try’s fu­ture.

It seems our nat­u­ral re­sources are sold to the high­est over­seas bid­der, who uses these re­sources to pro­duce goods we then buy back.

Could some­one in cur­rent or past fed­eral gov­ern­ments tell me how much of the prof­its from the sale of our enor­mous de­posits of nat­u­ral re­sources has been re­served ( saved) for our fu­ture gen­er­a­tions?
