Abstract: 'Australian Economic Statistics - Trends, Objectives and Policies' provides teachers and students with a select range of key indicators of the performance of the Australian economy over the past decade. It also includes analysis of the key economic policy initiatives undertaken by economic managers. The book contains charts and tables to support each section, along with a range of questions and exercises for student application. The research material is current, uncomplicated and precise - the essential ingredients for an accurate analysis of the state of the economy. For those who find graphs and charts frustratingly imprecise, the book includes the tables on which the charts are based - pictures and precision! The book also has an Economics Resource Base section which will provide useful references to internet links to allow students to undertake additional research. Key sections of the book include: Economic Activity; Employment and Unemployment; Price Stability; Income Distribution; External Stability; Efficiency in Resource Allocation; Monetary Policy; Fiscal Policy; and Microeconomic Policy.
