Getting the right balance between local, state and federal responsibilities for revenue and services would make Australia a stronger and more cohesive nation.

“Rather than have an all-powerful unitary government, federations offer the advantage of several governments operating closer to their constituents. By rights, accountability is enhanced and sub-national governments can learn from each other.”

...

“The empirical evidence from around the world is also strongly supportive of federations. Federated countries consistently have outperformed unitary states in terms of the key economic parameters, such as gross domestic product growth, unemployment and the like.”

Judith Sloan – The Australian 20/7/21
