About the Authors
  • This up-to-date volume considers Australian economic development in light of worldwide political and social developments, arguing that the Australian economy is an integral part of the world economy and subject to the same trends across the globe. The book also focuses on domestic factors that have shaped the growth of the Australian economy, such as the growth of exports, the role of foreign capital, and the positive contribution of migrants. The authors also consider the Gulf Wars, the East Asian financial crisis, and globalization.

    • Uses historical perspectives to explain the present and give direction to the future
    • Emphasises the importance of the global economy for Australia's long-term economic development
    • Comprehensive and up-to-date; extensive and practical use of tables and figures make it ideal for students
