The economics of infrastructure in a globalized world: issues, lessons and future challenges

Although infrastructure is widely recognized as a key ingredient in a country's economic success, many issues surrounding infrastructure spending are not well understood. In order to better understand these issues, a conference was convened March 2010 in Sydney, Australia, with leading international experts to explore the many aspects of infrastructure. The discussion at the conference was divided into six themes: the returns to infrastructure, the role of the private sector, the evaluation and delivery of infrastructure in practice, the nature of network industries, pricing and regulation, political economy considerations of infrastructure provision, and infrastructure in developing countries. This paper summarises the conference.
