If your serious about spending it in a manner to give maximum "intended" effect then by all means buy up.....but try spending with a Australian manufacturer.....otherwise the bulk of "your money" will head off to china, japan, thailand, etc, etc. The more of it that stays within our economy the better. I intend on putting it in the bank to reduce my debt position....possibly what this government should have done to "stimulate" the economy is show a bit of leadership with spending restraint. Spending mine and yours Future tax dollars does not inspire confidence to me, It just tells me that I'll be paying more tax and for a while too. Taking monetary policy advice from the IMF is like asking the devil if I should do it! thats some quality leadership.

cheers roo.

I hate to burst your bubble....but it is a pretty serious situation. one that you and I will be paying for for years to come. Don't be fooled into thinking it is a handout....more like a buyout of your future tax dollars...if you pay tax that is. The $200billion deficet they are trying to pass through parliament is equivalent to every man, woman and child in this country owing $9,523.81c each. you happy with that deal for your $950 now? Scroll back the clock to the last election....$21billion in surplus meant we owed nothing and in fact had $1000each in the federal surplus bank as such. not saying the election result would have made a scrap of difference to how the world crisis would have unfolded....just placeing the cards on the table incase you didn't realise the gravity of the current situation.
Cheers Roo.

I've been paying taxes for 25 years and probably pay for another 25years, so i'll take what i can get when they decide to give it away.I'll do the right thing and keep it in Australia. ( Another MILLERROD sounds GOOD! )

yeah ok it isn't. But does that mean serious comment is not applicable here?. The title of a thread that says "Rudd's $950 Cash Payout - Whatchu Buying??" tells me that the thread starter either doesn't realise the gravity of the situation or is taking the piss. I figured the former of the 2 options and replied as such. his reply confirmed my suspicions. Nevertheless if you get your hands on it then do with it as you wish. After all that is what K.Rudd wants you to do and you can feel content in the knowledge that you played a part in the results. My tip is they will send us into a depression that will take the best part of the next decade to recover from. If they kept their busy noses out of it and let the stupid CEO's and Greedy Fund managers fall into the financial black hole they created then the bad would disappear, the good solidly managed companies would survive and the whole cycle could start again. these measures will only prove to prolong the pain and make the consequences last longer.
I say this because I believe it to be true, If history proves me wrong then that is great for everybody....but if I'm right....and I hope not....Look closely at how this current situation correlates with the beginning of the great depression of 1930.

Cheers Roo.

Roo,
Your comments may be true but is venting your anger on a light hearted forum thread required? Sometimes opinions are better kept as just that! After all a great saying is "empty vessels make the most noise".

Shooting down Bream fisho's excitement at a handout is called scare mongering, something the nationwide news reporters are good at, let’s not get carried away....

A collapse in the global economy is not such a bad thing, look at how everything has fallen in cost, fuel, interest rates, blagh blagh. I know for the average middle income family they are actually saving more money in the bank now than they ever have before and this will come back into the economy at some stage in the near future.

What good is a surplus? It's like you saving money for a rainy day, when you need it, use it! Without government intervention in the form of "handouts" thousands more jobs would be on the line and this will be more devastating to the economy than re-injecting money into our pockets. And don’t believe the government won't get it back.
Don't get frightened and believe we are lapsing into a depression, this is a different time and the government are spending within their means.

If helping you to decrease your debt helps to keep you afloat in these tough times (if you are actually doing it tough) then that’s exactly what Uncle Kev wants, if bream fisho wants a new outfit go for it. That’s what it is meant for....

If you are really that opposed to receiving your incentive money don't accept it, no one says you have to take it! or better still pass it on to a charity or even bream fisho.

And last of all don't put your worrys onto people in a simple light hearted thread, take it easy, be positive and most of all don't stop spending money in you country (like how you suggest the government should be "showing leadership"), that will cause the most damage of all.

Wise words “Be fearful when people are greedy and be greedy when people are fearful” now is the time to actually make money if that’s what’s on your mind!

Better still, why not donate your cash payout to the poor blokes down in Vic who have lost everything...

Fine Jay. but listen carefully to your own words. I think my first post wasn't too scary. I encouraged him to spend wisely. As for the Govt. showing clear leadership with spending restraint is a valid argument. If you think its not appropriate then fine but labelling a scaremonger is a bit sensationalist. It may be light-hearted but it is a serious topic. As we've all seen over the weekend, their are more important things happening in this country at the moment so I will comment no further.
Cheers Roo.

Roo,

If you look at the Great Depression then at it's onset you will find that government's, particularly the US, used your 'hands off' approach. One official said liquidate everything, banks farmers, manufacturers, etc. It will purge the rotteness out of the system. He came to regret that statement when he saw what happened!

Ecomomists, in particualr Maynard Keynes, came to realise governments had to intervene and 'prime the pump' with government spending in order to get the economy moving again.

Australia is in less debt and in a better economical state than most others so yes i am happy with the $950 handout. Big deal we all may have to pay a bit more tax for a couple of years, its better than losing an income completely.
