Professor John Quiggin identifies flaws in the arguments on privatisation contained in the LNP 'People’s Budget'.

In April 2014 Professor John Quiggin wrote on his Blog that the LNP government in Queensland is launching a massive and expensive campaign to persuade voters to accept the sale of publicly-owned assets.  But the LNP campaign repeats the central error of its predecessor government (Labor), namely the claim selling assets provides a way to fund public expenditure without taxation.  The LNP offers an interactive website where we can make our own choices.  This would in principle, be quite a useful contribution to public debate. Unfortunately, it is rigged.
