Formatted abstract
This thesis examines hysteresis in the Australian economy. There are three hypothesis that it seeks to test. These hypothesis are:

1.) That the Australian unemployment experience is consistent with the presence of hysteresis.

2.) Assuming that hysteresis is present, is it a significant element in Australian wage equations?

3.) Assuming that hysteresis is significant, what effect has its neglect in wage equations had on the estimates of the effectiveness of the Accord's wage restraint?

The findings from empirical research are not able to falsify these hypotheses
