    Chinese influence in Australia is right in our faces now.
    This is not a racist post at all.
    There are sections of the Chinese community that are faithful to Beijing and the communist party.
    Beijing believes they have sovereign rights over many countries including Australia, they believe they discovered Australia long before the British therefore have sovereign rights.
    They wont invade us of course but they have flooded Australia with immigrants bought money here and bought real estate as we all know our kids are now priced out of the market but not just that they have bought many assets in Australia. They buy influence in politics and slowly but surely are taking us over.
    Watch this for starters -

    Read The Silent Invasion by Clive Hamilton.
    Saw this on the ABC web site this morning and it all makes sense.
    """Huawei wins $136m 4G telecommunications contract for Perth trains amid security concerns"""

    Would the head line be as emotive to you if it was talking about British or American Investment?

    We need to get more Aussies excited about investing.

    At least it seems that the younger crowd might be finally getting on board, watch this funny video, this guy is excited and ready to invest lol.

    Agree Mr Burns, it's not about race it's about ideology and the desire to keep our freedoms and not be controlled by others.

    Remember the 80s when Japan was buying up Oz ....... it stopped when they went bankrupt. Leopards can't change their spots, poverty will eventually win out in China when the West makes a quantum leap forward in the overdue next XYZ revolution.

    17,000,000 children are born every year in China, we are doomed......eventually.
    Once they get into politics and powerful positions and it's happening now it will be all but over.

    At least look at the video you'll see how far they are away from going broke.

    Is that before or after the removal of their one-child policy?

    You know that history might not repeat perfectly like that right?

    For one, the Comrades have smarten up a bit over the past few years and curb overseas "investment" in overpriced and strategically useless hedges like property, fancy hotels, movie studios... I mean, freaking Dick Clark productions was offered for $1B?

    I think they learn from what happened to Japan in that 80s when the got ahead of themselves and splurge on overpriced stuff they can't take back with them.

    So they're stopping capital flight, forcing investments to be made at home. Creating massive infrastructure programs those private capital can be invested into.

    The efficiency gain from them reducing their plebs travel time from a few hours to half hour commute; their transportation between majors from some 8hrs to now 3 hours.

    Add to that the investment in aircraft carriers; more Chinese babies and plenty of weak Asian neighbours as their potential background.

    They're going to civilise the heck out of SE Asia in a couple decades.

    Let's join the US and start a trade war with China. Add 100% tariff on all goods from China and stop all investments from China! Australia is a great country. We can do just fine without China!

    I simply asked the question, it was an honest question.

    Would the head line be as emotive to you if it was talking about British or American Investment?

    I mean over our history we have been the target for significant capital investments from many foreign nations, it used to be the British, then in the 70's and 80's it was the Americans, then the Japanese, and now the flavour of the month is china.

    China has put the brakes on infrastructure spend to curb spiralling local debt. PPPs are failing because of poor ROIs.

    Per capita it would be interesting to compare Turkey spend versus China.

    The honest answer would be no, there wouldn't be such concern because we would be dealing with companies not controlled by an authoritarian government with a record of attacking our infrastructure via cyber attacks.

    That implies racism and there isn't any.
    I have Chinese living either side of me and across the road, they don't make eye contact or speak.
    This book explains a lot of things.
