Imagine if you had $30 billion sitting in front of you. And imagine that you had been told to use it to boost the retirement incomes of Australians. Who would you give it to? Would you use some of it to boost the existing age pension? Would you put some of it into the superannuation accounts of those people, largely women, who have taken time out of the workforce to care for their kids or their parents? Would you put any of it aside for people who are currently unemployed, sick, disabled or on the new paid parental leave payment?
