The Airport Economist

Did you know that Australia is helping Singapore 'be creative' to address its imbalance of ballet dancers to engineers, and that there is a Transylvanian Cricket Club full of Aussies in Romania?

Or that Israeli youngsters are crazy for Tim Tams and the French are buying Billabong board shorts in Bordeaux on Bastille Day? Well if you didn't, The Airport Economist is just for you.

Written by Tim Harcourt, Chief Economist of the Australian Trade Commission and University of Adelaide graduate, The Airport Economist sees Harcourt travelling the globe in chase of Australian international business success. Along the way he unravels the economic life of the many countries he visits.

With a clever turn of phrase, witty observations, and proof that there's an export dimension to almost everything, The Airport Economist is published by Allen & Unwin and sells for RRP $24.95.
