The Economics Degree in Australia: Down but Not out?
Round, David K.; Shanahan, Martin P.
Journal of Economic Education, v41 n4 p425-435 2010
Before 1980, strong demand existed in Australia for the economics degree. Since then, competition from programs in business and management has increased. Student preferences have shifted from university and secondary economics. Economics enrollments have declined in both sectors. The authors analyze these trends and assess economic education publications by Australian economists. (Contains 1 table and 20 notes.)
