The Tasmanian Economy
Tasmania | 2nd November 2023
Presentation to the Annual Tasmanian Economic Forum, 2nd November 2023.
Despite out-performing the national economy on most metrics in the years leading up to the Covid pandemic, and during the pandemic itself, Tasmania remains the poorest state in Australia, by a wide margin. And now Tasmania’s economy appears to be under-performing the rest of Australia on most indicators. This presentation focuses on what could and should be done about that, re-iterating and up-dating some long-standing themes and introducing some new ones.
