What we should do is impose a carbon tax on imported goods unless the manufacturer can show with internationally accredited proof its made in an best practice ultra clean way.Australian manufacturers need to be supported through this change as we cant just have un-carbon taxed goods flooding the markets from OS. They need to be subject to a tax as well Thats my 2 centsThen funnel that money back to Australian manufacturers in the form of rebates on cleaning up their manufacturing processes. "The market will look for alternatives and that rings alarm bells for Australian building product manufacturers." Australian building product manufacturers need to look for alternatives to be more competitive in this new market. Im sure there will be pain at the start until the smart ideas that cost less get taken up. Lets not forget that this is not about straight up introducing a tax and continuing on as business as usual. Its about business investing in new ideas and changing the way things are done.
