Title: Australia can’t continue to divide the Indian Ocean in two

Author(s): David Brewster

Excerpt:

We’re approaching an Indo-Pacific strategy with a glass half-full – best to fill it up entirely.

By David Brewster

Australia’s definition of the “Indo-Pacific” currently includes much of the Pacific Ocean as well as the eastern Indian Ocean, but excludes the western Indian Ocean. This is no longer a sensible or useful way of defining our region. Australian policymakers need to include the island states of the western Indian Ocean in our Indo-Pacific strategy, even if only in a fuzzy way.

Title: India-Australia strategic convergence … with differences

Author(s): Manjeet S. Pardesi

Excerpt:

Both countries need to psychologically prepare for a “new” world of rising powers and those in relative decline.

By Manjeet S. Pardesi

Recent years have witnessed a dramatic transformation of the Indian-Australian strategic relationship. While Australia worried about India’s naval expansion in the late 1980s, and recalled its high commissioner from New Delhi after India’s 1998 nuclear tests, India and Australia are fostering a close strategic partnership today.

Title: Poverty and Inequality in Myanmar, 2005 to 2017

Author(s): Peter Warr

Excerpt:

Nationwide survey data on household consumption expenditures within Myanmar indicate that between 2005 and 2017 average real consumption levels increased and the estimated level of poverty incidence declined. Nevertheless, the Gini coefficient of expenditure inequality increased. The above events occurred within both rural and urban areas. Inequality between rural and urban areas also increased. This paper critically reviews the statistical information on which the above summary is based.

Title: Urbanisation and the demand for food

Author(s): Peter Warr

Excerpt:

Is the demand for food influenced by urbanisation, and if so, in what way? This paper reviews the relevant literature on this question and conducts an empirical investigation for Indonesia, asking whether the economic relationship between food demand and the conventional economic explanatory variables is altered by structural changes in the degree of urbanisation. Urbanisation is associated with changes in both levels of household expenditures and preferences and it is therefore analytically necessary to separate these two effects.
