The Government’s emergency support provided a crucial lifeline to the economy during Australia’s first recession in almost 30 years. The economy has recovered strongly and is set to return to pre-pandemic levels nine months earlier than expected last Budget with the unemployment rate's recovery set to be five times faster than the 1990s recession. While we are not yet out of the pandemic, we are better placed than most other countries in the world to meet the economic challenges that lie ahead. This Budget builds on this success to secure Australia’s recovery. [Website] Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Australian labour force participation : historical trends and future prospects / The Treasury

by Gustafsson, Linus | Australia. The Treasury Macroeconomic Analysis and Policy Division.

Publisher: Canberra, ACT The Treasury 2021Description: 37 p, Ill: col.; charts.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Over the past 40 years, Australia has experienced significant changes to the proportion of the population that is attached to its labour market. From the early 1980s, the aggregate labour force participation rate rose steadily, climbing from around 60 per cent in 1983 to almost 66 per cent in 2011. Underlying this long-term increase in the aggregate participation rate are opposing developments for males and females. The male participation rate fell from close to 80 per cent in the late 1970s to just above 70 per cent in recent years. Yet this decline in male participation rates over this period has been more than offset by an increase in female participation rates. Since the 1970s, the female participation rate has increased by more than 15 percentage points. This paper studies these developments through the lens of an age- and cohort-based framework and uses the estimated model to analyse historical trends and the implications of these past developments for future participation rate trends in Australia.

The competition policy review : final report / The Treasury

by Australia. The Treasury Competition Policy Review Panel [author] | Harper, Ian R [organiser.] | Australia. The Treasury.

Publisher: Parkes, ACT The Treasury, 2015Copyright date: ©2015Description: 1 online resource (539 pages).Other title: Harper Review.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "March 2015"; Chair of the Review: Ian Harper.Summary: Australia has enjoyed continuous economic growth since the early 1990s and weathered the global financial crisis of the late 2000s without a recession. This performance has led some to question whether there is a ‘burning platform’ for a new round of microeconomic reform. Evidence presented to the Panel throughout the Review suggests that reform is not only overdue, given stalled reform effort in the 2000s, but critical to improving Australia’s productivity performance and to sustaining our living standards into the future. With Australia’s terms of trade receding from their peak and the boom in mining investment past, we must look to productivity-enhancing reforms to underpin rising living standards and to strengthen Australia’s fiscal outlook. Reinvigorating Australia’s competition landscape is a central element of a new round of microeconomic reform. To this end, the Panel examines whether Australia’s existing competition policy, laws and institutions remain ‘fit for purpose’, especially in light of the persistent forces for change that will shape the Australian economy now and into the future. The rise of Asia and other emerging economies provides significant opportunities for Australian businesses and consumers but also poses some challenges. A heightened capacity for agility and innovation will be needed to match changing tastes and preferences in emerging economies with our capacity to deliver commodities, goods, services and capital. We need policies, laws and institutions that enable us to take full advantage of the opportunities offered. Our ageing population will give rise to a wider array of needs and preferences among older Australians and their families. Extending choice and contestability in government provision of human services will help people to meet their individual health and aged care needs. New technologies are ‘digitally disrupting’ the way many markets operate, the way business is done and the way consumers engage with markets. The challenge for policymakers and regulators is to capture the benefits of digital disruption by ensuring that competition policy, laws and institutions do not unduly obstruct its impact yet still preserve expected safeguards for consumers.

The goal of the Summit is to find common ground on how Australia can build a bigger, better trained and more productive workforce; boost real wages and living standards; and create more opportunities for more Australians. Australia’s economy and labour market face complex challenges. While the unemployment rate is at historic lows, a tight labour market has also brought challenges including widespread and acute skill shortages. Even before COVID-19, nominal wage growth had been weak and real wages had not risen significantly for around a decade. The ongoing effects of COVID-19, high inflation, rising interest rates, global economic uncertainty and disrupted supply chains further compound these challenges, whichare holding back the potential of our economy and country Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

This will increase demand on government support to the aged when the number of individuals of working age is declining. In reviewing the retirement income system, the Panel will focus on the features that are required to best meet the needs of society in the 21st century. This paper highlights key design issues that, in the Panel's view, would benefit from further community discussion before policy directions are determined. The issues are not exhaustive. The Panel has highlighted issues it considers to be central to the design of the retirement income system as it relates to the request in the Treasurer's letter. Consultation is not limited to these issues, although comments are encouraged on broader issues through the consultation process for the Panel's Consultation paper." -- APO webisteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

What evidence should social policymakers use ? /

by Leigh, Andrew.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. The Treasury 2008Description: PDF.Summary: "Policymakers seeking empirical evidence on social policy interventions often find themselves confronted with a mountain of academic studies that are potentially relevant to the question. Without some systematic way to sort through the evidence, there is a risk that analysts will become mired in the research, or simply cherry-pick those studies that support their prior beliefs. An alternative approach is to test each study against a hierarchy of research methods. This article discusses two hierarchies one used by US medical researchers, and another used by UK social policymakers and suggests one possible hierarchy for Australia. Naturally, such a hierarchy should not be the only tool used to assess research, and should be used in conjunction with other factors, such as the ranking of the journal in which a study is published. But used carefully, a hierarchy can help policymakers sort through a daunting body of research, and may also inform governments decisions on how to evaluate social policy interventions." -- Author.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
