Australia and New Zealand in a globalising world

In a presentation delivered to the 2007 Australia-New Zealand Leadership Forum, Alan Gyngell, David Skilling and Mark Thirlwell look at some of the challenges posed to both economies by globalisation. In particular, they argue that although globalisation has changed the geography of the world economy in important ways, it has failed to abolish geography: distance is still very much alive. Indeed, the combination of globalisation and geography is presenting both Canberra and Wellington with a challenging mix of policy opportunities and risks.
