Australia is too expensive and uncompetitive: Rinehart

Myriam Robin /

In a Youtube video uploaded by the Sydney Mining Club, Gina Rinehart has slammed Australia as too expensive and uncompetitive to operate in.

“This country simply can’t afford a carbon tax or a minerals resource rent tax,” she said.

“Indeed, if we competed at the Olympic Games as sluggishly as we compete economically, there would be a public outcry.”
