Explaining the Timing of Australia's Manufactured Export Boom

Gordon Menzies

Australian Economic Review, 1994, vol. 27, issue 4, 72-86

Abstract: Abstract This article seeks to explain some of the recent growth in Australia's manufactured exports using a sunk cost model. It is shown that a shock to the economy can cause a sudden and permanent increase in exports. Results from a sample survey suggest that the increased export orientation of Australia's manufacturing sector may persist, even if the recent economic shocks faced by exporters are reversed.
