    That’s not 40,000 university jobs lost, it was 40,000 immigration scam sponsor jobs lost.

    A good start.

  2. Not Trampis says:

    mining has one of the lowest multiplier effects.

  3. Rex Anger says:

    As compared to what, Paxton?

    Not a single barista, cloistered academic or Public Servant generates much in the way of value beyond their tax burden and GST. If they pay any discernible income tax at all.

    Mining and Agriculture? Not even in the same scale. Australia does not run on the proceeds of baristas, cloistered academics (or their full fee-paying International students) or Public Servants.

    Go be an intellectually insipid bugman elsewhere.

  4. Boambee John says:

    It produces huge revenue with relatively few staff.

    Of course, if the aim is to increase employment regardless, we could go back to building roads with pick, shovel and shaped stones. Some Scotsman named McAdam did a lot of work on that system.

  5. Shy Ted says:

    40,000 people trying to work out what gender they are now have to do it in their own time?

  6. Not Trampis says:

    The multiplier effect refers the number of jobs generated by the mining industry,

    It is very small. It always has ben and always will be.

    The revenue will be determined by whether the prices are high or not. they are at present.

    As for exports quite clearly few here understand how large University exports are or rather were.

  7. Rex Anger says:

    Very obvious to even the most deorable observer where you work then, Paxton

  8. Rex Anger says:

    And anyway Paxton, have you considered all the secondary and tertiary (and onwards) workers employed in mining equipment manufacture and repair, recruitment training and certification, service delivery, OHS bugmanry, payrolls, HR, transport, accommodation, processing, freighting and so forth?

    ‘Lowest multiplier effects’ my fluffy, train-driving (mine-product hauling) arse…

  9. Ed Case says:

    Education is valuable, education for a credential not so much.
    The Beef and Sheep industry has a multiplier second to none, why aren’t we building that up?

    Non Compos Mentis thinks that selling permanent residency visas is an export industry? Wow!

  11. a reader says:

    I’m baffled why we can’t have a vibrant university sector like the UK or the USA and STILL have mining

  12. Ed Case says:

    Albo reckons all the coal miners can get jobs in the Renewables Sector.
    Sounds batty, but remember that Renewables require Rare Earths, so called because China is that rare country prepared to allow strip mining of the Earth to find the stuff.
    Australia can have a Rare Eath industry too.

  13. JC says:

    mining has one of the lowest multiplier effects.

    Homer, please stop trying to sound intelligent as it’s not true what you’re saying. Services to the mining industry is huge. Indirect support is huge.

    Please remain silent.

  14. Entropy says:

    Not only that JC, but the mining royalty revenue and corporate tax are the core basis (other than grandchildren debt of course) that funds things like universities and basket weaving inner city interests in the first place.
    I would even wager that without mining and agriculture and the reputation for skills in those areas, we would not even have very many student visa applicants. There are only so many 7-11 franchisees, hairdressers and taxi drivers we can employ on them.

  15. Entropy says:

    What I would like to be able to do is employ a graduate that does not require three years of close supervision and training to be useful and capable of being trusted to do The Job.

  16. Not Trampis says:

    of course you can have both. We did.

    Davidson’s comment simply is untrue. Indeed the university sector adds more value than mining because we export most of our mining. It adds value in other countries.

  17. Rex Anger says:

    Paxton, we are not validating you, and your ambit is both stupid and factually wrong.

    Australia’s economy does not, and never has, ridden on the Barista’s, Academic’s or Public Servant’s back.

    Go away and psychophant at Steve of Brisbane’s blog. You are an utter waste of a troll.

  18. Not Trampis says:

    your comment is both untrue and all over the place.
    come back after your take your blue pills.

    That mining has one of the lowest multiplier effects is taught in all unis that examines input/output analysis.

    It is also shown in any regional town.
    Unis add value to the labor force each year every year.

  19. Boambee John says:

    Non Compos Mentis

    That mining has one of the lowest multiplier effects is taught in all unis that examines input/output analysis.

    This almost guarantees that the statement is wrong.

    Unis add value to the labor force each year every year.

    There are only so many fingernail salons and convenience stores that can usefully be operated here. Plus, it would be useful if the unis could produce a higher proportion of literate and numerate graduates.

    Still, with such a reputation for “high value” products, surely they could operate on a full fee basis? No more taxpayer funding?

  20. Rex Anger says:

    come back after your take your blue pills.

    This phrase, Homer Paxton.

    I do not think it means, what you thibk it means when you are talking at us…
