About the Author

William O. Coleman is a Reader in the School of Economics at The Australian National University. He has written extensively on monetary policy, political economy, and the contested position of economics in society.


This edited collection of papers by prominent, mostly conservative writers provides a lot of thought-provoking analysis of Australian exceptionalism and whether it was of its time in the past or is continuing. * ANDREW PODGER, Economic Record *
