Event Description

Full Description:
Abstract
Australian city economies have shown distinctive trajectories over the last decade. Since 2000 Melbourne has grown faster than Sydney in population and employment. This is despite Sydney’s advantages in 2000 in having greater prominence as a global city, with stronger finance and advanced producer services sectors, and high visibility from hosting the Olympic Games. This presentation examines a number of hypotheses as to why Melbourne grew more despite such initial Sydney advantages.
