    Markets, Money and Empire: The Political Economy of the Ausralian Wool Industry by Tsokhas, Kosmas

    Melbourne, Australia: Melbourne University Press, 1990 A history of the Australian wool industry, and Australian government's trade policy. By examining the role of Australian governments in negotations over trade, tariffs, interest rates and balance-of-payments problems, new light is cast on the actions of Highes, Bruce, Lyons and Menzies. Economic nationalism, not loyalty to the British Empire, was their primary motivation. During the 1930s and early 1940s Australian government action even reached the point where it was effectively sabotaging British foreign policy. These books were purchased new and have been in storage for decades. However, there is minor tanning along the edges of the book. Several copies are available. 235 pages.. Paper Back. Very Good. Size E: 8"-9" Tall (203-228mm).
