Wednesday, October 11, 2006: The paucity of debate on media reform has thrown up an ugly prospect: local content and diversity are goals only for policy wonks, journalists and National Party backbenchers. The rest of us just doesn't seem to care. Even th

The missing ingredient in Martin Feil's analysis of outsourcing (The Age, 30/5/2006) is workers - all workers, that is. At the risk of being dismissed as a "globalist", I don't see the imperative to be concerned about low-skilled workers in a first-world
