Industry policy for a productive Australia

8 Dec 2008
Description

In this 'Colin Clark Memorial Lecture' at the University of Queensland in August 2008, Gary Banks, Chairman of the Productivity Commission challenges the Australian Government to consider the teachings of Colin Clark to carefully design and implement industry policy to better ensure Australia's economic future. "If Colin Clark were alive today, he would undoubtedly be impressed with Australia's progress in reducing import barriers. But he might well turn a critical eye to some other forms of industry support and wonder whether they were all justified in the terms just described."
