Sensible Australians.....

I have always been curious about these economic stimulus packages. Int he US, they send a check to households with the expectation that that household spends it on consumer goods. Economically, these things are very suspect. I feel that it is government trying to show that they are doing something even if this 'something' is more form over substance.

So, these Australians realize what is going on....

The federal government is giving Pensioners etc. a bonus for Christmas.
If we spend that money at K-Mart, the money will go to China.
If we spend it on petrol it will go to the Arabs, if we purchase a computer it will go to Taiwan,
If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to China, Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala,
If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan,
If we purchase useless crap it will go to Korea and none of it will help the Australian economy.

The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in Australia.

Thank you for your help.

(Australian Prime Minister & Australian Treasurer)
