WELFARE CONSIDERATIONS OF NORTH AUSTRALIAN DEVELOPMENT DECISIONS

Issue is taken with those who adopt a short-term economic allocation approach to the question of the development of Northern Australia. It is argued that welfare-economics criteria are inappropriate when consideration of development is involved and that attention must be paid by economists to immeasurable benefits and to national long-term goals rather than to the maximisation of immediate utilities.
