Just get over it : the cost of living in Australia /

by Soutphommasane, Tim | Per Capita.

Publisher: Surry Hills, N.S.W. Per Capita 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Bibliography pp. 27-29Summary: This paper investigates the cost of living in Australia, an issue that has dominated recent political debate. It evaluates whether cost of living complaints are justified in light of economic reality and household consumption patterns. It considers how governments should respond to cost of living issues. While much public discourse suggests there is a generalised cost of living crisis, the reality is less alarming. Inflation figures indicate only a modest increase in the cost of living, even when adjusted to include mortgage interest and consumer credit charges. While the cost of some essential items have experienced price rises that exceed the CPI, with particularly negative effects on those on fixed and low incomes, these must be considered in light of the full economic context. Wage growth, low unemployment and higher household savings levels all indicate a disproportionate level of concern about the rising cost of living. Australian households are, on average, better off now than they ever have been.Availability: (1)

Publisher: [Canberra, A.C.T.] Access Economics 2008Description: 30 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: An issues paper prepared by Access Economics for Anglicare Australia, Catholic Social Services Australia, The Salvation Army and UnitingCare Australia. Family & early years School to work Into & out of work Retirement & ageingSummary: The current global financial crisis and its likely impact on the Australian economy will have an acute impact on the most disadvantaged members of society, as well as pushing increased numbers of low and middle income earners to seek the services of welfare agencies. Even during the recent period of buoyant economic conditions, agencies were reporting growing demand, and the emergence of a new clientele of mid-stream wage earners facing severe financial stress. This has been mirrored by academic research into new indicators of disadvantage. Instability in the financial sector and its flow-on effects to the rest of the economy, can only exacerbate these problems, putting an even greater strain on what are already overstretched social services." -- Executive summaryAvailability: (1)
