The Financial Crisis and what it means for you
The financial crisis that has overwhelmed banks, stock markets and governments around the world seemed, to many, to come out of nowhere. But it has its roots in policies and financial innovations going back several decades, to the breakdown of the previous global financial system amid the inflation and mass unemployment of the 1970s. The current crisis is likely to have equally profound implications for individuals, families and business and for the way in which the economy will be managed in the future. It is too early to tell for sure what these implications will be, but John Quiggin will have a go anyway.

    What does Newcastle University think too!?Come to think of it,in all its glory,there is Coffs Harbour,and Armidale,and there is also myself,sometimes creating ideas for work,that certainly get used,but payment back to me gets kudosed[wouldn't know if that word is possible] out of existence.My latest idea for those lucky enough to be employed ,if ,someone somewhere thinks it is a necessity,is running guttering along gas pipes wherever they can be found in Australia with some appropriate roofing to gather the water.Possibly Lysaghts,although they could be sellingto opponents.I noticed pipes over a article by a well known economist at the SMH about Chinchilla, recently.I dont know from the photo in the newspaper of that date how long those pipes are and the area wide,and where they actually go.And the average rainfall across them.But with that as the only real concern,plus costs doing it,someone,academic should look at these pipes above ground where ever they are as potential water feeders,to maybe town and farm etc.if not industry itself.Is this area directly your interests Prof!?If,not,someone somewhere is bound to notice a oppurtunity,and or potential!?
