Disparity is Australia's worst social problem. Thousands of lives are slowly being crushed, while billions are wasted on thousands of little initiatives trying to 'close the gap.'
There are people all over Australia who use their homes as hubs that they travel from, and they encourage their indigenous people to continue to stay there.
I would say to young entrepreneurs and budding philanthropists - are you giving to feel good or do good?
Statistically after six months, if an Indigenous or non-Indigenous person has come off welfare, even long-term welfare, and has stuck in that's job for six months, then they've really broken in their own psychology the welfare reliance mentality. They're up on their own two feet.
I happen to be a big believer in home ownership. I'm also a big believer that if someone wants to have a crack at the mining industry in Port Hedland, then they should be able to collect their... benefits in Port Hedland even though they are from Alice Springs. It should be mobile.
If you look hard at it, if you look hard at the bleeding heart attitude to always throw money at issues, throw money at problems, what you're in fact probably saying is you're exercising a prejudicism of low expectations.
What I would say is governments need assistance to run their organisations more efficiently just like businesses do.
I really do think I can make a contribution in helping eliminate the disparity here in Australia and doing my small bit to help eliminate slavery around the world. These are huge issues for our fellow countrymen and our fellows in the world, where slavery is growing at an alarming rate, and it needs to be arrested.
Tax can be structured in a way that actually encourages investment in infrastructure and encourages investment in Australia from overseas.
Australia has always encouraged the little bloke to have a go, the Aussie battler to get up.
My greatest love in life is to develop projects. I just get a huge kick out of that. I've been doing it since ever I could.
When you're asked/told to come to Canberra by your Prime Minister, in the country I grow up in, you obey that.
I will always put family first. Every time I haven't, I have regretted it and apologised.
We really need to change taxation policy so that it is not skewed against owning more than one house.
We do need an attitude of leadership in our government which demonstrates faith in major population centres outside of Perth.
I'm never looking at life in terms of legacy.
You cannot afford a world with slavery, which literally takes someone and turns them into a machine.
There's so many politicians who have given politics a pretty poor name... their actions have been demonstrated to be part of their over-enthusiasm to get reelected.
I'd like to see the University of Western Australia and the other four or five universities in Western Australia really excel through having some of the greatest minds in the world attracted to it.
Wealthy people in Australia tend to give, and give very quietly.
