AMEC-funded mining industry advertisements well-targeted

Share |
My congratulations to the mining industry for creating a well-designed advertisement highlighting the various arguments against the adoption of a mining tax. Here is a series of advertisements here. I'm sure it will be a huge success because it highlights some of the many ways in which the tax will hurt Australians, and the unfair way in which the 3 major miners have acted to establish barriers to entry for the rest of the industry. The campaign by AMEC strikes me as far better orchestrated than that by the major miners Rio Tinto and BHP. Like I say - those larger companies are run by 'managers' not 'shareholders'. It makes a huge difference to their decision-making.
