A New Economic History of Australia

    Project Details


    The Project aims to bring skills and innovation into the centre of the Australian story. It believes we have achieved most when we invested well in ourselves and led the world in skill, education, health, innovation and institution-building. Australia s story is not only one of resource exploitation and physical investment but also of human investment. In this we once led the world but then fell behind. The significance of a new Australian story, to be based on a new collection of human resource data, is that we should look at ourselves differently and, from that insight, move to better policies for our future with new confidence.
