Okay, I'm not Australian but I lived there for a year, if that gives me any credibility. I have background in science and economics. I say this:
Australia is very strong and very stable. It's not infallible of course, but it is a lot more stable than many other countries. Russia invests in
your dollar even.
If something was to happen to Australia, I doubt it would be as severe as in elsewhere. If anything, with the global financial crisis, I see Australia
as rising into more power as other nations fall from power from sheer economic elegance.
People who stockpile food... are kind of weird. Why not just grow a vegetable garden? And I don't think Australian government will ever let its
people starve. Although capitalism is an inherently unstable system, so at worst you could see something happen like what is happening in Greece. And
people lose their jobs. But as I said, Australia is economically strong, I really don't think this would happen.
