‘Fortress’ Australia, is a response to the concern that, as a nation, we lack self-sufficiency. It is characterised by nation-first decisions and higher levels of government intervention in industry. Fortress Australia sees a balanced budget de-prioritised for the sake of increased expenditure as governments build on fiscal precedence set during the crisis.
‘Enterprise’ Australia sees smarter regulation and digitisation enable private industry to grow Australia out of the crisis. Merger and acquisition activity and private investment in technology rise as industry doubles down on globalisation in search of productivity gains - in part facilitated by an open doors immigration policy. Fiscal stimulus is unwound and government targets a balanced budget.
Decision-makers across Australia’s economy face difficult trade-offs impacting economic growth, productivity, living standards, government intervention, risk appetite, digital investment, security, nationalism, international trade and more. The Fortress Australia and Enterprise Australia modelled by PwC show what outcomes for national income, industry, household consumption and employment outcomes could look like.Find out more
