The public admission of a regional monopoly
Okay, listen up, BHP Billiton Rio Tinto, the regional monopoly and a global duopoly, has proven itself incapable of managing its staff and sales operations in China. Its fractious internal politics pull the parts of the monopoly in different directions. Anglo Australian management has lost control because it is too big, too unwieldy.|
BHP Billiton Rio Tinto is too big and powerful an entity to exist.
In the West, a monopoly of the scale of BHP Billiton Rio Tinto is normally unacceptable and public opinion would gravitate against such a huge, monopolistic, entity.
Of course if it is used to constrain China's growth and limit China's potential, then it is obviously acceptable to white Australia.
The problem here is, this regional monopoly cannot be trusted because it cannot be controlled. It cannot be controlled because it is too big. It is the Ma Bell of the resource industry, except that it is bigger and the elite top echelon is an unprincipled, empire-building white Australia with an empire mentality that dates back to the British East India Company.
One of the findings is the way the monopoly used the media to promote its agenda and to win white Australia's public opinion to support a monopoly to constrain China's growth and to squeeze China for the benefit of an Anglo Australian empire.
To further cast dispersion on China, white Australia has consistently reported on the Stern Hu case. Stern Hu has admitted to accepting a relatively minor bribe. White Australia is using Stern Hu to divert attention from its more insidious activities.
China should slap a fine on Stern Hu and a jail sentence with time served, then let him serve out the rest in Australia. It is unfortunate that a BHP Billiton Rio Tinto senior executive should take a bribe.
We are after accountability from a regional monopoly and a global duopoly, we are after accountability from BHP Billiton Rio Tinto.
