Buy locally campaign unnecessary, but harmless

Buy locally

It seems obvious to me that buying from local businesses is good for the local economy and I suspect it’s obvious to most Queenslanders, too, but for some reason we need a Government information campaign to tell us this (Think Queensland, Buy locally). At least it’s just a promotional campaign and doesn’t distort the market in favour of local suppliers or impose a burden on businesses. Hence it’s nowhere near as bad as the Federal Government’s campaign to encourage local purchases, as discussed in my previous post:

Billion dollar Jobs Plan assumes local businesses aren’t getting fair share of work from big projects

I hope the Queensland Government didn’t pay an advertising firm too much to design this unnecessary campaign.
