The electorate has spoken, but Turnbull's speech shows he hasn't listened

In The Conversation (17.8.16), Saul Eslake discusses Malcolm Turnbull's first major economic address since the July federal election, commenting that it was the kind of speech one might have expected from a leader who had won with a comfortable margin.

'Turnbull signalled an undiminished determination to enact the ten-year program of reducations in the company tax rate, which was the centrepiece of the Coalition's plan for "jobs and growth". ...

' ... Treasury's own modelling of the government's proposals, released shortly after the most recent budget, suggests that the ultimate impact on economic activity and national income will be almost imperceptibly small.'
