Kurzbeschreibung

In the 1970s Globalisation became the all embracing idea. Human activities from politics to social policy and culture were perceived principally through the prism of economics, which once released from government interference, would find its own balance (Ralston 2005, 35). However, today often consumers and retailers were asking: „What is actually still made in Australia?“ Consequently the monograph endeavours to address two aspects of Made in Australia, that is from the viewpoint of Economic Policy to foster the well-being of its citizens and additionally from the viewpoint of Law in the sense of regulating the term Made in Australia. Several authors have contributed different aspects to the overall matter „Country of Origin“ from examples of buying national campaigns in different countries, to the history of Australian international trade and to judicial assessments of the term Made in Australia as well as the regulations of „Country of Origin“ through the World Trade Organization (WTO).
Another aspect is whether the Australian economy should retain a „Safety Net“ with essential products, produces and services Made in Australia for economic crises? This economic policy with all its implications is vital for a large country, even given the fact of a population of roughly 20 million people, which is often regarded as too small for such a policy. It might be argued that the Australian economy is losing essential manufacturing and services industries by shifting them overseas, and subsequently Australia might become a „quarry“ with some farming and tourism.
