Tim, You should remind the government that the current high prices are leading to Rio alone spending $13 billion expanding the Pilbara. It is the construction that is the boom now, and it will be the preemptive expansions now that will keep WA producing at a high level ahead of expansions in Africa and Brazil. Any short term tax grab will diminish this long term production rate to the detriment of the econmoy. i would much rather Rio made lots of money and spent it than give it to Canberra to "invest".
