Please Select Your Pricing Category

1988, 60 Minutes

Economic Australia explores the role of money in our lives and offers a rare opportunity to turn back the clock to witness filmmakers’ views of Australia’s economic development.  

The program focuses on some major events in Australia’s economic history, as well as looking at those everyday situations in which economics plays a part in our lives.  

It is divided into five themes. Money in Our Lives looks at the role of money, different attitudes towards it, borrowing, buying, squandering and not having enough. In Business illustrates the importance of business in Australia, including research and development and future opportunities. Being Employed raises a variety of issues concerning the world of work. The fourth theme considers the roles and responsibilities of the public sector, while the final section focuses on the trade and finance links between Australia and the rest of the world.
