In this in-depth overview of Australia’s economy, Michael Enright and Richard Petty -- leading scholars on international competition--look at the data behind the news reports to offer a complete view of Australia’s stable and wealthy economy. The book compares Australia with other similarly sized OECD economies as well as other Asia-Pacific economies and looks at fifteen international sources of data on competitiveness. It features a large-scale survey on Australian companies and offers deep insight on the country’s future in terms of economics and economic policy. Revealing an honest assessment of Australia’s true position in the world, the book looks at how Australian businesses see themselves and offers policy positions for government and firms to make the most of Australia’s unique global economic position.
