New Resources

  • New Digital Interactive – Snapshot Comparison

We have launched a new digital interactive Snapshot Comparison that enables students to compare snapshots of the economy at different points in time. The Snapshot Comparison generates statistics and graphs showing such indicators as GDP growth, the cash rate, the unemployment rate and inflation.

  • New Illustrator – Unconventional Monetary Policy

To follow our Unconventional Monetary Policy Explainer, we have created a new one-page Illustrator, which provides a summary of the RBA’s unconventional monetary policy measures currently in place. 

  • New e-magazine Careers with STEM: Economics

A new e-magazine for students has been added to our Explore Economics careers pages. It contains interviews with economists and the RBA’s Prices, Wages and Labour Market team, as well as insights into the benefits of studying economics and range of careers it can lead to. A PDF version can be found here.  

  • Economics in the news

Are you going to be discussing the record trade surplus with your students? Our Balance of Payments Explainer provides useful background reading to aid students’ understanding.
