Economic stimulus in Crow's Nest

The GFC (which is how Aussies universally refer to the "global financial crisis") is over but the stimulus lingers on. Jon photographed this sign on the gates of an old school building in our Crow's Nest neighbourhood in north Sydney. It was the last day of his stay in Sydney. Two points: the unemployment rate in Australia was 5.1% in December 2010, when this photograph was taken; and U.S.-style graffiti was common, but the graffiti artists were absolutely invisible to us.
