Abstract:     
Market forces allegedly are serving to destabilise traditional business structures and cause some form of convergence along "Anglo-American" lines. While this trend has been the subject of much debate, it has not been widely commented on in Australia. Moreover, those analysing corporate governance from a comparative perspective have had little to say about the country. Since Australia shares much in common with the US and the UK, those interested in a possible Anglo-American convergence trend can potentially benefit from examining Australian developments. This paper identifies various questions that require analysis to place the country's experience in its proper context. Answers are offered for the questions raised but the primary purpose of the paper is to launch a dialogue between Australians interested in corporate governance and their counterparts elsewhere.
