Why is macroeconomic policymaking in Australia generally seen as successful by observers in the rest of the world? Professor David Vines will explore the radical shift in thinking about open- economy macroeconomics which has taken place in Australia between the 1920s and the present. This story began with an economy on the gold standard, with a protectionist trade policy, and with centralised wage fixing; an analysis of this process was set out in the Brigden Report of 1929.
