Australia is essentially a stone age colonial economy that relies on digging stuff out of the ground then selling it to more advanced economies.I liked the Chinese minister's response. He pinned the tweet the fking Aussies were b!tching about.
The reason they're rich, however, is that they stole all the ground that they are digging things out of through brute force.
They made the mistake of thinking Chinese are Afghans or Aborigines though. They're going to learn the same lesson India did when a resource economy went against an industrialized one.
