“The people of Melbourne can feel confident about what the future holds”
I agree that the people of Melbourne can feel confident about what the near future (3 years from now) holds because we have a good, stable political system which doesn’t look like it will change, our relationships with other countries are stable and because employment keeps evolving which means there will always be jobs for the people of Melbourne.
Firstly, all of Australia’s relationships with other countries are stable which ensures good import and export so if Australia stops producing something it can still be imported and the reverse; if Australia produces a surplus of a certain product we can export it to other countries and boost our economy with the money received. Also it ensures that in the unlikely chance of an invasion we have other countries military mainly America to help defend us.
Unlike some countries Australia has a very stable and fair political system which is good for the future in just about every way, it generally prevents internal war and having a good government which passes the right laws can improve employment, homelessness, corruption, the environment, public facilities and anything else run by the government.
Many people believe employment will be a big problem in the future however the fact of the matter is that employment keeps evolving; just because jobs are getting slashed on big companies doesn’t mean jobs aren’t being created elsewhere. Jobs are essential for a certain future full of prosperity and stability, and I believe that there will still be sufficient jobs in the future to keep our economy ticking over nicely.
