Bromhead, Peter, 1933- :Bedmates at last! Auckland Star, 14 December 1982.
The cartoon shows two homeless people lying on a park bench, one represents Australia's economy and the other represents New Zealand's economy. Two newspapers, being used as blankets, inform us that the CER agreement has been signed. Refers to the CER and New Zealand and Australian economies being in similar condition to each other.
Exhibition caption reads - Australia and New Zealand were about to sign a free trade agreement but how well would this work with both economies in the doldrums? Australia's inflation rate was at a five year high and the currency had never been lower against the US dollar; New Zealand's inflation rate soared to 17% before the imposition of a mid-1982 wages and price freeze.

Grant of the New Zealand Cartoon Archive and exhibited in the National Library Gallery from 28 November 2001 to 24 February 2002 to mark the centenary of Australian Federation.
