Abstract:     
To what extent are surges of political right-wing populism in modern democracies linked to macro-economic and socio-demographic factors? This comparative study aims to verify that the occurrence of specific patterns reflected in unanimous key economic denominators amongst selected free-market economies as well as selected socio-demographic factors prevalent in society, effectively lead to the inception and upsurge of democratically-endorsed right-wing extremism. Moreover, the objective is to highlight and conclude possible correlations between the upsurge of Australian radical and militant right-wing extremism of the 1980s, and equivalent political and civil movements in Germany, Austria and Hungary in subsequent decades.
