This book is about the Australian difference. It is about how in economic and social policy, Australia now diverges significantly from comparable countries.
This volume brings together economists, historians, and political scientists to delve into what makes Australia so different. The book suggests that the 'special path' that Australia has followed for over a century is the product ofphysical circumstances, historical accidents, fateful choices, and the unique personalities thrown up by an extraordinary land.
Contributors to Only in Australia include Geoffrey Blainey, Henry Ergas and John Nethercote.
Only in Australia will be launched at Muse by Senator David Leyonhjelm with contributors Phil Lewis and Nick Cater, and introduced by its editor Dr William Coleman from the ANU College of Business and Economics.
