This chapter is one of four contributions from academics examining how their own countries have managed to deal with debt. This chapter traces Australia's long term approach to reforming its economy to make it internationally competitive and reduce the level of public debt. In particular, it focuses on one aspect of this approach, the use of various privatisation technologies by the Hawke-Keating and Howard governments.
