Unresolved Conflicts in Australian Mineral and Energy Resource Policies
Preview not available

Abstract

Australia's non-renewable resource industries face new challenges. Internationally, their relatively privileged position in the 1970s and 1980s is being replaced by a more competitive economic order. At home, the slow pace of micro-economic reform continues to qualify their efficiency, whilst environmental policies are complicating their access to potential new reserves. Examining the economic and political context within which mineral and energy resource policies are evolving in Australia, this paper exposes the conflicts between wealth creation and environmental concerns.
