Socio-economic Policy in Australia During the Crisis Years 1984-2004
The subject of this paper is a critique of neoliberal socio-economic policy applied in Australia in years 1984-2004 by governments of formally different political orientations. It contains a detailed analysis of how this policy changed the quality of life of ordinary Australians. As strict quantification of life's quality is impossible from various reasons, attention is focused on such areas as unemployment, inflation and real wages. (original abstract)
