Formatted abstract This thesis examines Australian policy towards the cartelization of exhaustible resources. It considers the case of tin and initially a model 1S formulated to determine whether the potential exists for significant gains through cartelization. The results from chapter indicate that International Tin Council (ITC) members can increase discounted profit by up to 40% by establishing a cartel. To determine Australia's optimal policy towards participation in such a cartel the profits which accrue to Australia as 8 cartel member and as a member of the competitive fringe are estimated. A comparison of the results indicates that Australia should urge the establishment of an international tin cartel and its interests are best served by participating in a cartel with other I Te producer nations. The results of this analysis in the case of tin would justify further research into the cartelization of other exhaustible resources.
