Abstract

Australians sometimes call their land the “lucky country”, and many of the nation’s 19.8 million citizens are right to feel fortunate. On average, Australians enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world and, despite the regional economic downturn, the economy continued to grow strongly throughout the late 1990’s outstripping that of the USA to many indicators.
