Economics and International Trade




This project will throw some light and will focus more on these reasons behind this growth by doing a proper analysis of the GDP and economic growth of the past five years. Though there was a recession in the past years of early 1990, still Australia managed to overcome that later, however, this recent growth had outnumbered the histories. This project will reveal the strong growth of the Australian government, which will bring about a change in the economy of the country as well as the growth of GDP of the country.


Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Economic Growth


Gross domestic product or GDP is the total value of money for all the services and goods over a particular time. This GDP includes public consumption, investments in various plans or businesses, exports and imports and even private consumption too (Daley and Wood, 2015, p.23). The calculation of the GDP is given :

The above formula depicts GDP as the Gross Domestic Product, C represents the private consumption, G represents the Expenditure of the Government, I represent the Investment of the country and NX represents the Net Exports of the country that is subtracting exports from the imports. GDP is used to find the comparison of productivity of several countries. It helps in identifying and measuring the productivity in terms of economic growth of the country. In order to identify the products, this GDP is basically divided into two parts. These parts include:

a)      Nominal GDP

The inflation rate is not at all included in case of nominal GDP; still, it helps in increasing the economic growth of the country.

b)     Real GDP

The corrected rate, which has been rectifying post inflation, is taken into account in case of Real GDP.

One of the best procedures to calculate and find the growth of an economy and the living standard is to consider Real GDP. This Real GDP shows the purchasing power of all the individuals residing in the country. The output gap gives the difference between the difference between the potential GDP and the actual GDP and can be obtained by subtracting Y* from Y (where Y* is the potential output and Y is the actual output). If the above calculation fetches a positive number, then it suggests that the aggregate supply is quite lower than that of aggregate demand and this indicates that there is a sudden rise in the inflation. However, the GDP percentage is calculated by subtracting potential GDP from the actual GDP and the result obtained is divided by the potential GDP to fetch the final percentage. If the out-group is found to be positive, then it indicates that there is a high demand, however, if the out-group is found to be negative, then it indicates that there is a low demand. The real GDP and the price level can be obtained from the supply and demand. With the rise in the level of price, there is an increase in the GDP supply, thus the output falls.

From the above diagram, LAS represents long-run aggregate supply, while SAS represents the short run supply (theguardian.com, 2018). E represents the equilibrium level, AD represents the aggregate demand and Y represents the actual output and Y* represents the potential GDP.

There is a certain increment of 0.6 percent since the past quarter while 2.8 percent over the past few years in the GDP of Australia. It is showing an increased result in the growth however, there were more expectations from the country (Burck et al. 2014, p.16). A few economists from Russia had surveyed and predicted Australia's economic growth to be 0.7 percent in the quarter of September and an overall three percent since the past year. However, in the last quarter, both the private and public sectors drove the economic growth of Australia.

There is an increase in the activity of both the public infrastructures and private business investments across various industries in Australia. According to Goodman et al. (2017, p.14), this was due to the reason as investment played a key role in the uplifting of the GDP growth rate (Hajkowicz et al. 2016, p.17). This investment had driven the growth in a much consistent way, however, in a midway; it was flattered with a sudden rise of a dwelling construction received from two LNG platforms of Australia.

The above graph depicts that there is a huge growth in between the years 1995-2000. However, there was no such sudden steep rise in the later years. Moreover, after 2015, it had fallen drastically, after which in recent years it is again raising. As published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the GDP figures are obtained below in the given screenshot. The below table clearly shows the change in the adjusted price of the Australian GDP, which in other words known as the economic growth of Australia. On an average, there is a growth of 3.4 percent of GDP per year. However, the graph further states that there is a decrease of 1.6 percent of economic growth in the year 2009. However, this growth was a remarkable as Australia was one of the few countries that had shown growth of GDP in the year 2009.

Figure 4 represents the growth chart of Australian GDP, which has been noticed in the past years. The numbers shown in the above chart are quite significant and reflective.

Figure 5 shows actually the fluctuation chart of their GDP. The above graph represents the trend and seasonally adjusted fluctuation of the GDP. it is pretty clear from the above chart that the seasonally adjusted GDP had gone below zero quite a number of times in the recent years. However, the trend had not gone beyond zero since the past years.

Future Forecast

As per the policies and decisions are taken by the Australian Government, the below statistics reflects the growth rate of the real GDP of Australia from the year 2012 until 2017 with the rise in the projections until the year 2022. According to Jarrett and Anderson, (2017, p.20), it is clearly seen from the below graph, that Australia had grown on an average of 2.27 percent in the past years.

One of the primary and foremost indicators to determine the economic growth of a country is the GDP. It helps in determining the health and state of the economy of the country.
