Forbes Asia;12/10/2007, Vol. 3 Issue 21, p7
The author comments on the effort of the Australian government to support the labor movement or union and open its stance toward the emerging economies. He notes that Australian Prime Minster Kevin Rudd will be a moderating influence on the Labor left. He argues that after 11 years of mostly market-oriented policies under former Prime Minister John Howard, the nation will not find a host of new cost pressures so bullish for the export economy.
