Publications, The Australian Economy | 6th June 2017

Saul Eslake | The Conversation |06th June 2017

Australia hasn’t had a recession – defined as consecutive quarters of ‘negative growth’ in real GDP since the first half of 1991. Some have claimed that, with the release of first quarter GDP figures on 7th June 2017, Australia will have surpassed a ‘record’ for recession-free growth established by the Netherlands between 1981 and 2008. In this piece published on The Conversation I look at whether this is in fact a valid claim

2017-06-06 There'll be no records set this week by Australian economic growth figures
