This topic is very close to my heart. Instead of writing an essay, I thought I will get to the point straight away.
I watch politics, economics and world history very closely. Any county or person who follow Buddha’s path will prosper in this very life and next life.
I have seen Buddhist qualities among many people live in Australia, though Australia is not a Buddhist country.
However we should not be too complacent about it.
A rooster today can be a feather duster tomorrow.
So as a nation Australians should strive to govern the country according to Buddhist theories.
This is applicable not only to Australia but to the world.

Until 2.45 it contains some very worthwhile reflections on life in Australia, but also relevant to people living in other developed nations.
Reflections that may be worthwhile considering before one complains about how tough we have it.
