Global Restructuring: The Australian Experience

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1999 - Business & Economics - 172 pages
This book provides a lucid introduction to the Australian experience of global economic restructuring. It demonstrates the importance of a geographical perspective in understanding specicific links between processes of global change and economic transformations within Australia. Recent approaches to explaining global restructuring are used to build a framework for understanding patterns of production, trade and investment. The uneven impacts of economic change within Australia are summarised, and case studies presented of food processing, iron and steel production, motor vehicle manufacturing and banking. The book concludes by drawing out the most important implications for government policy. This revised edition reflects on the Australian experience of global restructuring during the 1990s.
