Abstract

How have views on Australia's current account deficit evolved over the past two decades? What factors have shaped and altered policy and market perceptions of the current account? This paper examines these questions within the framework of the intellectual underpinnings of the debate on the current account between economists and policymakers in the 1980s and evolving macro policy framework and policy constraints.
