APW2010: The Best and Worst of Times: Indonesia and Crises, with some Southeast Asian Comparisons
Economic crises cause serious social and economic distress, and sometimes have significant political consequences. These effects are often more severe in developing countries, because their governments are less likely to have the fiscal and institutional capacity to protect their citizens. Southeast Asia has experienced two major economic crises in recent times, the Asian financial crisis of 1997-98 and the current global financial crisis. This presentation examines the causes and consequences o

APW2010: The Regulatory Challenge of Asia
What does it mean when the Vietnamese government detains, without warning, Australian executives of an airline in which a major Australian company has made a long-term investment? After all, this kind of large-scale, high-technology investment in Asia is precisely what the global trade rules and transnational commercial laws of the late 20th century were designed to achieve. Our Vietnam example, however, is not a paradigm dispute about the terms of trade or the design of a commercial transaction

2010 Morrison Lecture: Australia and China in the World
And so today I am delighted to be able to present this, the 70th George E. Morrison Lecture. George Morrison was a man surrounded by controversy. But no-one, not even his greatest detractors, could deny his deep knowledge of China and his fascination with this ancient and continuing civilisation. Morrison was one of a kind. Nonetheless, the truth is he is little known in contemporary Australia. My view is that, 90 years after his death, it is time for that to change. Morrison is one of the most
