Structural reform in the Australian transport industry

In the early 1980's there was an emerging consensus that government intervention in Australian industry was seriously flawed. Regulation of markets and mis-direction of government business enterprises were blamed for hampering Australia's economic progress. Nowhere were these problems deeper than in the transport sector. There has since been appreciable progress in the liberalisation of markets and the reform of institutional arrangements applying to government business enterprises in the transport sector. Nevertheless unfettered market processes are not the predominant means of allocating resources in this sector and government interventions continue to exact a heavy toll. The reform task requires more effort.
