This is a sector that is inextricably linked to infrastructure and energy. Government’s investment in infrastructure projects, e.g. ports, airports and roads go to the heart of Australia’s productivity and competitiveness. Bringing lower costs of production centres, regional towns and cities closer will be critical for the long term in terms of reducing bottlenecks and the pressure of urban sprawl in large cities, but also in terms of the sustainability of inland cities.
Our work in financial services and behavioural economics is pertinent to this sector.
