Economy / Trade

The Citizens Party is primarily concerned with the functioning of the physical economy, the processes that meet the food, clothing, shelter, transportation and communications needs of the population. Instead of measuring economic growth with the monetary metric of gross domestic product, we measure it with the physical metric of whether the economy is capable of sustaining a growing population at a higher standard of living. We will end economic policies such as deregulation and free trade that undermine Australian industries and production for the short-term financial gain of a few large corporations.
