Balancing the Budget: Getting Australian expectations of spending and revenue raising in order

post-image

For too long now our politicians have dodged bringing the community into the discussion of our wicked budget dilemmas: 1. Community expectations for government-supplied services and support are greater than our potential to raise revenue and 2. Our taxation system is too dependent on personal taxes and puts an unfair load on working Australians. The avoidance is due to fear of electoral backlash.

Experience elsewhere suggests that the best way to resolve such wicked problems is to effectively draw the community into the deliberations. A citizens jury is one such approach.

Mr Chalmers and Albanese - why not?
