About this Unit
This unit provides an overview of the processes promoting globalisation and their impact upon Australian economic development. The unit stresses the interaction between the globalisation tendency and counteracting forces such as nationalism, and the contradictory economic, environmental, political, racial and class interests that have mediated and shaped the local impact of globalisation on the development of the Australian economy. The unit concludes by examining the socio-economic and environmental outcomes that ongoing globalisation is likely to produce in the 21st century for the world and Australia including the possibilities and prospects for indigenous economic development.
