Killing the econ­omy

Daily Mercury - - YOUR SAY -

THE lat­est Na­tional Ac­counts data from the ABS has once again put La­bor’s eco­nomic mis­man­age­ment on dis­play.

Ac­cord­ing to the ABS, Queens­land has had the slow­est eco­nomic growth of all states. Worse still, in the last two weeks we have seen a fall in state con­struc­tion, a credit rat­ing out­look down­grade, and now con­fir­ma­tion that we are lag­ging be­hind all the other states.

Build­ing ap­provals, con­struc­tion work and busi­ness con­fi­dence are all down, while debt, taxes and unem­ploy­ment con­tinue to sky­rocket.

Un­der La­bor, Queens­land build­ing and con­struc­tion con­tin­ues to fall lower and lower, while greedy tax grabs just grow higher and higher.

Queens­land’s econ­omy is clearly suf­fer­ing from La­bor’s five new taxes and from a record debt that will crip­ple eco­nomic growth for years to come. It is clear La­bor’s eco­nomic mis­man­age­ment and in­fra­struc­ture cri­sis is killing Queens­land’s econ­omy. Tim Man­der,
