Week 32: Planning the Economy

[ View the related 'Weekly Post': Week 32: Planning the Economy ]

A number of references have been made to finances and money. Last week we read of The Africaine making a stop in Cape Town, South Africa. Sailing from Europe to Australia in the 1830s, captains tried to avoid calling into ports as these stops cost time and money was spent on port charges and supplies. Some of the currencies mentioned to date in our blogs include the English pound and Spanish dollar. Money and finances played a big part in the establishment of South Australia and its economy. This week we look at trade, examining how exchanges were made and start to learn about the first industries in South Australia.
