Queensland Economy Watch

Queensland Economy Watch is a blog stumbled on today with some interesting commentary frm Gene Tunny, an economic consultant from Brisbane. Click on the Cairns category in the sidebar for posts directly related to Cairns.

Following our recent post on the comments by Arthur Sinodinos on the role of Guvmint and the Arts in attracting talented people and building vibrant cities with global reach, it was interesting to see Tunny's post "Cairns, a tropical bohemia?" and the comment "Nonetheless, promoting Cairns as such may be a winning strategy for the Cairns Regional Council. It’s well known that attracting the bohemians is great for economic growth: Bohemia and economic geography"

The link is a paper that may be worth a look for outspoken opponents of the proposed Cultural Entertainment Precinct?
