    Because labour is our most expensive resource and because of economies of scale is it 10x more profitable to send ore and coal to China than it is to make steel here.

    It does have its benefits, for example we control the Chinese steel industry.

        We're a service economy primarily. Education is a big industry. We have a big missile manufacturing industry, we sell missile tech to the US.

      Why is Australian coal still a viable industry when other first world countries (US, UK) were outsourced?

        Because our coal is the highest quality in the world, it is the best for making steel so China buys it in massive quantities for insane prices.

          Why is it high quality? Isn't coal coal?

            No, the quality of coal varies greatly. Chinese coal is very dusty and low quality.

            Why are there so many foreign students in Australia's universities?

            Because they pay 7x the fees, upfront. They pay like 100k, have to work 2 jobs in the gig economy to survive, get shit grades as a result and don't get hired afterwards because everyone knows jeets are useless.

            It's basically legal slavery, we exploit the frick out of them and they keep coming and we get rich off it.

            International fees typically aren't the same as domestic fees.

            Locals might pay like 40k-50k, for the most expensive degrees (humanities) but we get it deferred as student loans through HECS-HELP. Int students don't get it, or welfare.

            Because it's Australia and it's by far the best place in the world to live? Everyone in the world wants to live here, female Chinese international students literally prostitute themselves out at brothels to afford to keep living here https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2019/08/chinese-international-students-lured-prostitution/
            About a year ago some 21 year old jeet uber eats driver got ran over and died and no one cared.
            Any meme you read on here about Australia is untrue, these people have no rights, no power and we exploit them ruthlessly. Up to 10 Indians live in a single apartment in Sydney. There was an Indian girl in my uni facebook that wrote about killing herself from the stress.

            It's next to impossible to make friends unless you're already in a social group
            In Adelaide the first thing people ask each other is 'what school did you go to'?
            If you're not an extrovert who plays footy, loves drinking and taking drugs and can always be great at conversation you're going to really struggle to make it socially in Australia

        American coal production wasn't outsourced, it was automated. America produces more coal than Australia, it's the third largest producer behind China and India.

          Literal nothingburger. My state had about 2 weeks of lockdowns over all of COVID because frickwit foreigners kept entering the country, breaking quarantine in the hotels, and going to parties and starting massive spreader events

          So the Gov created a quarantine centre in Darwin for foreign arrivals, and somehow people overseas thought they were concentration camps and that the gov was spending millions of dollars to take individual Aussies out of the cities to a camp 3000 kms away. Euro backpackers were filming videos of themselves partying in the camps, with everyone getting pissed from the fully stocked minibars.

          So again, a nothingburger
