WILLIAMS Griffith University DOI:10.1111/ajph.12471 Overview The latter half of 2017 saw mixed economic and political fortunes. While unemployment and energy costs were lamentable, other economic indicators rebounded. The Labor, Liberal-National and Pauline Hanson One Nation parties each suffered their own significant crises as Queensland — in the grip of election date speculation and the Premier’s denials of an early poll — inched ever closer to a formal campaign. The result would stun most observers. Economy The period began with the Queensland economy enjoying mixed fortunes. While unemployment peaked at 6.5 per cent (the nation’s second highest), job vacancies grew 11 percentage points more than the previous year. With 60 per cent of all new jobs now created outside Greater Brisbane, regional economies were especially well served
