Abstract

This paper argues for an expanded interpretation to be given to the trade and commerce power in s51(1) of the Commonwealth Constitution. It argues that the existing interpretation is too narrow to deal with the kinds of business issues the nation faces in the 21st century. It draws on the American experience with its commerce clause for support for a broader view of the power.
