Abstract

The objective is to analyse the effects of the Hilmer reforms and National Competition Policy (NCP) on Local Government Authorities (LGA's) and the State Local Government Grants Commissions (LGGC's) operations. The analysis is based upon a particular definition of microeconomic reform with an emphasis on those aspects which concern Local Government. Hilmer's place on the microeconomic reform agenda is described and the five basic principles of the NCP are outlined.
