Imagine you are asked by the university to represent the Department of Economics in a Focus Group

and Energy. The assignment is to write a 1200-word news report for a community publication, outlining
and explaining various and opposing positions on the environmental sustainability of the Australian
Wine Industry as a whole. The positions (or well-researched opinions) will be presented in the Focus
Group Discussion (CR#2) by your peers (other academics and professionals, like yourself, who are also
working on sectors of the Australian Wine Industry).
Your main task is to advocate an economic position (one founded on sound economic reasoning and theory) on the environmental sustainability of
the Australian Wine Industry.
