Research publications


CEDA's research raises the level of public policy debate and discourse around the country.

Since 1960, CEDA has produced more than 3000 publications, research reports and articles. These research publications highlight emerging issues and directions in a diverse range of policy areas, such as taxation, energy, industrial relations and healthcare.

The quality and independence of CEDA's research program has built our reputation as Australia's leading independent voice on economic and business issues.

CEDA's research and publications agenda is guided by some of Australia's best and brightest policy minds from academic institutions, businesses and public sector organisations, who form the CEDA Council on Economic Policy (CCEP).

In addition, for each CEDA research project a CEDA Advisory Group (CAG) is formed, which:

  • Provides expert input and oversight of the project scope; and
  • Assists in developing the final reform recommendations.

2018 CEDA research 

How unequal? Insights into inequality released in April was the first piece in CEDA’s 2018 research agenda to examine the benefits and cost of economic development. Subsequent CEDA work in 2018 will examine community attitudes to economic growth and development; and
a review of the purpose of economic growth and development in Australia.
