Updated July 27, 2018 04:04:33 In the run-up to a general election, some commentators have suggested that Australia could soon be a “care economy”.
The idea is that we could see more people getting into the work-related activities that are the most popular with employers.
The idea, at least in theory, is that if we make sure everyone has access to a quality of care, then more people will choose to do the things that pay them the most.
There are certainly reasons for optimism about the future of the economy.
The growth of private-sector employment has been one of the fastest in the world in recent years, and wages are also rising.
But the health of the Australian economy has been at the centre of many debates about the way to achieve more prosperity.
In this week’s Business of Business edition, we explore what the future holds for the health industry and what the public is buying into.
The health industry is facing serious challenges The health sector is one of Australia’s fastest growing industries, but its growth has been slowing in recent decades.
This is partly due to a combination of factors.
The introduction of Medicare and other health insurance schemes has made it more expensive for people to go to the doctor and to seek medical treatment.
Some also have less access to medical equipment, including devices such as x-rays and CT scanners, which can be expensive and can sometimes cause health problems for patients.
The increase in the number of people in the workforce means that the number working in the health sector has risen faster than the number who are in full-time employment.
Some economists argue that this will lead to an increase in demand for health services, which will then be funded by people who are more likely to have health insurance.
Health-care workers are often underpaid Workers at the front-line of Australia and around the world, health workers are underpaid in the public sector and are often paid below their pay.
This has contributed to a significant increase in health care inequality.
The OECD estimates that Australia is home to some of the highest rates of health-care inequality in the OECD, and that workers in the private sector are less likely to be in a position to afford a healthy lifestyle.
The growing pressure on Australia’s health-systems to pay staff more will also have an impact on the health-services budget.
The Government recently announced a new tax on the excess profit of private health-related companies, which could lead to some cuts in funding for health-tech services.
The potential for some cuts to funding for services is particularly worrying because the Government has promised to make health-insurance cuts to the private health sector.
A health-economy ‘care economy’ The Australian health sector faces many challenges, including the ageing of the population, and the rising costs of care.
These problems are exacerbated by the fact that the health system is also under pressure from a growing population.
In Australia, people born between 1964 and 1995 have an average life expectancy of 57.6 years, compared with an average of 52.2 years for people born in the 1990s.
This means that we are entering the third generation of people, who are expected to live longer, and are expected, by the end of this century, to have a much higher death rate than their parents.
This also means that there is a growing demand for better health care.
Australia’s largest health insurer, Medibank, estimates that the total annual cost of health services in Australia will be about $3.3 trillion by 2040, with the vast majority of this being for people in primary care.
The Australian Medical Association estimates that, by 2036, the health budget will be $3,000 per person per year higher than it is now.
These pressures have created a situation where health care providers have had to adapt.
They have to look at the whole health-providers’ work, including both primary care and hospitals, and have to develop better and more efficient systems.
Some are beginning to do this by developing new technologies to make it easier for people who have health conditions to access health services.
These include electronic health records (EHRs), where records of all health events are collected and stored.
This technology has helped the Australian health system to deliver on its promise to make primary care more efficient, and has made the system more cost-effective in the longer term.
A new industry, private health services The private sector is currently one of many sectors which is competing to provide services to people in a cost-efficient manner.
It is not uncommon for a health-based business to offer health-specific products or services to a consumer.
These can include dental, eye, hip, respiratory or massage services, as well as home health and care.
There is also a private health service that focuses on the elderly.
These private health companies are increasingly making use of technologies to deliver more efficient services to older Australians, particularly in areas such as mental health.
In the past, this has meant that the delivery of these services has been slower than
