Building the Education Revolution Implementation Taskforce : first report /

by Australia. Building the Education Revolution Implementation askforce.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth of Australia 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The primary goal of the BER program was to underpin economic activity in the construction sector through a period of significant global uncertainty. Effective monetary policy, strong commodity prices, continued growth in China and the Commonwealth's fiscal stimulus program all acted in concert to economically shield Australia from the global financial crisis. The Taskforce considers BER made a material contribution to economic growth especially in its first year. It is projected to support approximately 120,000 jobs over the full life of the program, filling a gap left in demand from the private sector and playing an important role in supporting apprentices and skill retention in the building and construction industry. The Commonwealth established the BER Implementation Taskforce (the Taskforce) in May 2010 to receive, investigate and respond to complaints about the Program, with a focus on examining whether schools and education authorities are achieving value for money from their BER projects. The Taskforce was asked to make recommendations to the Commonwealth about any changes to the Program policy, contracts or projects it thinks could improve the remaining delivery of school buildings and refurbishments.Availability: (1)

Business as usual : the roots of the global financial meltdown /

Much more basic than the result of a few financial traders cheating the system, this is a potential historical turning point. In original essays, the contributors establish why the system was ripe for crisis of the past, and yet why this meltdown was different. The volume concludes by asking whether as deep as the crisis is, it may contain seeds of a new global economy, what role the US will play, and whether China or other countries will rise to global leadership. The Possible Futures Series gathers together the great minds of social science to address the significance of the global economic crisis in a series of short, accessible books. Each volume takes on the past, present and future of this crisis, suggesting that the crisis has an informative history, that the consequences could be much more basic than stock declines, and that only fundamental changes - not fiscal band aids - can hold off future repetitions.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

How many jobs is 23,510, really? : recasting the mining job loss debate /

by Chapman, Bruce | Australia Institute | Lounkaew, Kiatanantha.

Publisher: Manuka, A.C.T. Australia Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Australia Institute. Technical brief ; no. 9.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011Summary: It is commonplace in Australian policy debate for groups presumed to be adversely affected by proposed policies to provide estimates of the undesirable consequences of change. A fashionable form relates to predictions of job losses for the group affected, usually accompanied by counter-claims made by the government of the day or other groups in favour of the policy. ; A highly public example of the above is the claim by the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA), based on work done in 2009 by Concept Economics (2009) that the then-planned Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) would result in 23,510 fewer jobs in Australian mining than would otherwise be the case. A major background issue is that most economists would argue that any changes in the relative price of carbon-producing output must also be associated with offsetting increases in employment as a result of the higher level of activity in, for example, alternative energy production, and this is perhaps the critical point in the jobs debate concerning the consequences of policy reform. While we acknowledge this fact, the very large job loss figure might be a frighteningly large number for many observers, so we address the question: how many jobs is 23,510, really?Availability: (1)

How much did the 2009 fiscal stimulus boost spending? /

by Leigh, Andrew.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Forty percent of households who said that they received the payment reported having spent it. ; Forty percent of households who said that they received the payment reported having spent it - approximately twice the spending rate recorded in surveys assessing the 2001 and 2008 tax rebates in the US, according to this report. ; Using an approach for converting spending rates into an aggregate marginal propensity to consume (MPC), this is consistent with an aggregate MPC of 0.41-0.42. Since this estimate is based only on first-quarter spending, it may be an underestimate of the longer-run impact of the package on consumer expenditure.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
