A Bill passed in the House of Representitives in 2019 is going to ban any cash transactions that is over $10,000 AUD. It is currently under debating in the Senate. This bill is introduced to enforce the law that any transaction should be logged and provided with an invoice. If required, a GST must be collected by the government. Australian small businesses are technically ready to provide such service to any customer that needs to make such a large transaction.
Australian government should consider about ways to remove coronavirus totally. Firstly, our neighbour New Zealand has played a good example for us that it is plausible. Secondly, economically, it can be less costly. After the first wave, we thought that was it but it turned out to be wrong. If we don't eliminate the virus, it will always hang on top our economy and block the recovery. In the last and most importantly, it is human lives that we need to save. If we allow it to happen continuously, there will be lives lost. To those who are vulnerable, it is unfair. Yes, eliminating the virus will be costly and tough, but it is possible and the right way for Australia.
When coronavirus worries all Australians and drags the economy down, the state and federal government are still just arguing about who is more negligent. Face the truth, they don't have any plan for the docking foreign ships. The federal government is responsible for the border and customs, thus should be responsible for making plans for dealing with the crews. Of course it will need the help from the local government. But first of all, the federal government should have a clear and consistent plan.
