As we head towards 2050 and beyond, our society will be faced with many challenges.
Climate change, food security, equality, justice, health and welfare challenges are but a few. Here I share my thoughts and observations about many current and continuing issues. I would be pleased to receive your feedback and I invite you to join me in the conversations.
We have endured the first year of the Coalition Government’s 3 year term.I use the term ‘endured’ because so many have suffered.Upon reflection of the past 365 days in Federal politics, there is one pressing question which remains unanswered, ‘where are the bright ideas?’
Where are the proposals of nation building significance from our PM who wishes to be known as the “infrastructure PM?” Water would be a great place to start.Universally we must put a higher value on water.We won’t need to worry about the economy if we fail to act and secure future potable supplies and supplies for industry.
In speaking with business people throughout my travels in recent months, I am becoming increasingly alarmed at tales of a familiar practice permeating many retail outlets.
That is, the practice of consumers conducting ‘reconnaissance missions’ on items before making a purchase. Whether it be for a pair of sporting shoes or a bra, it seems consumers aren’t afraid to admit that they are just ‘trying on’ an item so that they can make a purchase on line.
