One of the most the most dangerous places for humans to live on earth, Australia is home to a variety of creatures that can severely injure humans on land and in the water. From the giant saltwater crocodile and great white shark to the tiny red-backed spider and dozens of poisonous snakes, travelers and residents alike now have a handy pocket reference that covers the creatures to watch out for, how to avoid encounters and basic first aid on how to treat different injuries.
"This book documents the history of economic discourse in Australia and New Zealand from the early days of European settlement. Many of the early economists were immigrants (William Hearn, Charles Pearson, Catherine Spence, David Syme). A few (such as W. C. Wentworth, born on the First Fleet) were proud natives, self-taught but confident and assertive in their use of economic arguments. The 20th century brought European refugees (Heinz Arndt, Harro Bernardelli, Fred Gruen, Kurt Singer) and a healthy crop of locally-born public servant-economists (Bernard Ashwin, John Crawford, 'Nugget' Coombs, Leslie Melville, Roland Wilson). There were theorists of international renown (Richard Manning, Wilfred Salter, Trevor Swan), some who made important contributions to public policy debates (Ronald Henderson, Eric Russell) or distinguished themselves in econometrics (Rex Bergstrom, Bill Phillips). The 130 entries in this volume have been written by more than 50 international authorities, revealing the depth and diversity of economics in Australia and New Zealand over almost two centuries." "This biographical dictionary is a comprehensive original reference work that will appeal to many economists and researchers of history and public polity, in addition to those involved in the history of economic thought."--BOOK JACKET.
