It’s the revenue stupid: ideas for a brighter budget

Paper by Matt Grudoff, for the Australia Institute, 5.5.15, suggests:

‘The government has claimed there are no alternatives to its budget vision and called on the senate crossbenchers to stop blocking its budget measures or find alternatives that stack up.

‘In order to help the government out and shift debate back to good budgetary policy, The Australia Institute has made eight policy suggestions that will;

  • reduce the budget deficit by billions
  • make savings progressively with those with the most ability to pay paying the most
  • make savings efficiently, minimising market distortions and in some cases correcting distortions already in the market.’
