TASMANIAN BUDGET ANALYSIS
BOOK LAUNCH: ‘BIG: The Role of the State in the Modern Economy’
In Australia today, the Prime Minister and his Cabinet spend more time picking small fights than solving large problems.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison wants to spend a lot more money on defence, the business community wants more spending on infrastructure and education, an ageing population wants better health and aged care, and young Australians want more action on climate change and affordable housing.
Each problem requires more public spending, but for decades Australians have been told that the less government spends, the better their lives will be.
The reality is taxes and government spending don’t ruin the economy, they reshape it.
Join us for a gripping conversation on how we can reshape Australia for the better.
