Anzus Economics: Economic Trends and Relations among Australia, New Zealand, and the United States

Synopsis

This work is the second in a series examining the changing nature of one of the United States' most important relationships, the ANZUS Alliance, linking the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. The volume describes the evolution of the three countries' respective domestic economic structures, international economic orientations, and relationships with each other in the period since World War II. The study concludes that the most significant common economic interest of the three is the preservation and strengthening of an open international economic order and trading system, an interest sorely tested in the present difficult economic times.

Excerpt

This is the second in a projected three-volume series containing the findings of a multiyear study of relations between Australia, New Zealand, and the United States during the period of the anzus alliance. the project is sponsored by the East-West Center of Honolulu, Hawaii, in conjunction with the Institute of Policy Studies at Victoria University in Wellington and the Australian Institute of International Affairs. the project is not a study of the security alliance per se, but rather of the broader interrelationships between the three societies and governments. the objective has been to identify the major trends, dynamics, and issues in the relationships over this period and to consider the implications of these findings for the future relations among the three and for the broader Asia-Pacific region.

The first phase of the project examined sociopolitical trends in the three countries and changes in their national self-images and perceptions of each other. It resulted in the first volume in this series, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States: Internal Change and Alliance Relations in the anzus States, published by Praeger in 1991. the second phase, leading to this volume, considered economic trends and relations among the three. the third phase and projected final volume of the series looks at the regional policies of the three governments concerning security, economic cooperation, and the Pacific islands.

In each phase, teams of experts from each country representing various academic and professional specializations have been assembled to compile studies of the individual country experiences and then, in a conference, to compare these experiences and identify the major similarities, discontinuities, and implications for other aspects of the relationships. the conference on which this volume is based took place in Wellington in August 1989. Subsequent to the conference, the country studies have been revised and updated . . .
