As many Australians as possible need to participate in this boom over at least the next 2 decades. Australia is in the global family however, its resources are depletable, and aspects of that globalisation process need to be deferred over that period. Specific policies should be directed as follows: 1. Infrastructure projects in their entirety need to go to Australian companies. Tax incentives need to be offered to Mining companies to achieve this. 2. Australian mining companies should not be permitted to sell the mine. They should sell the product, but could offer "debt" investment by overseas parties at a sizeable premium above the risk free rate. The Australian Banks should be directed to jointly establish an Australian mining and resources merchant bank to raise Australian equity and raise overseas debt. 3. The Mining tax and the Carbon tax should be reduced substantially and re-named with proceeds soley devoted to re building the future fund and addressing research into global warming and where possible invest directly in renewables. 4. It seems that all are on the Mining gravy train. All Australians, including indigenous Australians are free to work, save, buy a house and land. The buyout or extinguishment of native title with funds that include State resources royalties needs to stop forthwith.Unfair native title claims, on both sides, are to be fought in courts of law but recognising that all Australians are free to work hard and gain land ownership. 5. Free trade is the ultimate objective, however, for the next decade protectionsism of Australian manufacturing that particilates in mining and resources industry must remain. All Australians must benefit from the boom. When its over, it is over and all Australians but be ready for that occurrence.
