From wool and gold to minerals and manufacturing, Trading Nation reviews the history of Australias trade and trade policy since Federation. The book tackles a number of key questions which are central to the nations future. What is the future of our trade in minerals, agriculture, manufacturing and services? How can trade policy help address our faltering productivity? Is the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations dead and, if not, what can be done to conclude it? What can we expect from new free trade agreements? Is there more we could be doing in trade policy with Europe, India and Latin America? This comprehensive book also looks ahead at the options for Australias future trade and trade policy.
