    • Abstract:
      The article presents abstracts of several research papers related to economic history and development and national economics. The first research paper "The Late Victorian Economy," by W. Ashworth, seeks fresh grounds of discussion on the basis of agreement about the contrast in growth rates between the mid-nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries in Great Britain. The second article "Australian Economic Developments," by H.P. Brown, states that final use of Australian economic resources has moved strongly towards fixed capital formation, defense and education in the four years from the top of the last boom to the present full capacity level. The third paper "Investment in the Public Sector of South Africa," by G.W.G. Browne, analyses investment in the public sector in relation to economic growth in South Africa. The fourth paper "Investment and the Balance of Payments of South Africa," by J.C. du Plessis, examines the limiting effects of the balance of payments on the cyclical expansion and economic growth of South Africa for the years 1956 to 1964, and analyses the import content of fixed investment over this period.
