BRAND SNOB­BERY

Wheels (Australia) - - Inbox -

Phil Stacey is ab­so­lutely cor­rect about the lost op­por­tu­nity here with the clo­sure of our car in­dus­try ( In­box, Septem­ber).

We are too so­phis­ti­cated to buy Aus­tralian and show our sup­port for Aus­tralian-made.

We are vic­tims of our own per­ceived suc­cess and the over­paid wages we re­ceive. Our av­er­age in­come is 30 per­cent higher than in the US. With that we have to show off with ex­pen­sive badge pos­ing at the ex­pense of our own in­dus­tries.

This will cost Aus­tralia $30 bil­lion a year in car im­ports alone. Our grand­chil­dren­dren will not thank us for that. Mur­ray Roberts,berts, via email
