The article criticizes the failure of the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) to protect the fishing, agriculture and mining resources of the country from being exploited by foreign firms. The author comments that the free market world efforts of the political leaders in Australia has limited the opportunities to local fisheries to gain access to the Australian waters while it opened more access to foreign nations. He argues that transfer pricing and market manipulation cause the problems in its agricultural sector.
