‘Alone of all the races on earth, Australians seem to be free from the 'Grass is Greener on the other side of the fence' syndrome, and roundly proclaim that Australia is, in fact, the other side of that fence.’

Douglas Adams, British writer, March 1952–11 May 2001.

In terms of economic development, Australia has benefited from two benign factors: first, from the structural reforms made in the 1980s (some observers would say back as far as Prime Minister Gough Whitlam’s re-election in 1974) and secondly from continued demand from Asia and notably (by a long chalk) China, for Australia’s considerable mineral and energy resources. The continued strength of the mineral extraction sector has helped to fuel the mining boom which in turn had lead to the continued rise in value of the Australian dollar. But every silver lining (in this case the conservation of Australia’s triple-AAA status) had its downside. In this case,  for Australia’s crucial tourist industry, as well as its non-hydrocarbon exporters, this was the currency that had, since early 2009, risen by two-thirds against the American dollar.
