Impact of the mining boom on Australia’s non-mining industries


This presentation provides a summary of key findings from research by The Australia Institute into the economic impacts of the mining boom. It gives an overview of the Australian mining sector, including levels of employment, foreign ownership and subsidies, and looks at the consequences of the boom for non-mining industries like agriculture, tourism, manufacturing and education. The research presents compelling evidence of the damage being done to these key Australian industries by the mining expansion, which is driving up the Australian dollar and creating skills shortages. These slides are taken from a presentation given by TAI Public Engagement Officer Mark Ogge in February 2013 and include brief summary notes and references.
