Abstract:

"The emergence and development of automobile production in Australia was a long, drawn out and costly business for car buyers and taxpayers." "Throughout the twentieth century to foster and preserve a local industry, Australian governments implemented a range of protective measures which was quite extraordinary. Tariffs (the enduring measure), quantitative restrictions, local content schemes, market sharing arrangements, subsidies of various types, the granting of monopoly production rights and even outright import prohibitions, all were tried at various times."
