Is there a case for regional policy in Australia?

Australia
Description

This note draws on some European literature to address whether there is a case for regional policy in Australia. It concludes that a place-based approach does not provide all the answers to addressing problems associated with spatially uneven development (such as overheated housing markets, congestion of roads and public transport, and structural adjustment in carbon intensive industries), but it does provide a new way of tailoring responses to them as they impact upon people and businesses differently across regional cities, rural regions, and the outer suburbs of the capital cites.
