What Happened To The Car Industry ?

car-industry

With protection from the federal government in the early years, and co-investment more recently, the industry thrived, and dragged Australia out of the farm era and into the ranks of industrialised countries.

These days, the industry has provided a great return on the taxpayer investment; income tax paid by automotive workers repays the taxpayer three times over.

 

What Happened to the Car Industry? tells this story more in sorrow than in anger. Accompanied by superb cartoons by Mark Knight and John Spooner, it is an indictment of
political folly and industrial vandalism.
