Aussies are losing faith in the government, survey shows
Australians are rapidly losing faith in the current government, according to the results of a new poll.
Roy Morgan Research has confirmed that 60 per cent of the population do not trust the authorities – up from 53 per cent last year.
It seems that a lot of people have become disillusioned in the past three years, as the figure only stood at 32 per cent in 2009.
Just 30 per cent now believe that the government is doing a good job, which is quite surprising given that the nation has undergone 21 years of consecutive economic growth.
Business banking customers are understandably unhappy with the way things are going at the moment, as many are finding it hard to remain profitable.
Plenty of company owners have blamed the high value of the Aussie dollar for their plight, as shoppers are able to purchase much cheaper goods from abroad.
Although levels of corporate confidence have grown slightly this month, trading conditions are still tough and a lot of firms feel that the government could do more to rectify the situation.
