Aim low on price for long-term

I don't pretend to be a management strategist, but having been on the management committee of a successful business and observed all manner of other commercial enterprises, I enjoy comparing the choices made in terms of culture, brand and direction.

A good sentiment but unfortunately one that does not appear to apply to the general Australian economy. Although the"boom' is over prices continue to rise in almost all sectors from government, services, health care and general daily living expenses. The fortunes enjoyed from the short lived mining boom were poorly handled and only enjoyed by few the consequences for the majority however refleced in higer costs and expenses to the point that Australia is now one of the most expensive countries in the world.
