In today’s Australian Financial Review (2/2/23) the assistant minister for competition, charities and Treasury, Andrew Leigh called for more evidence to back government programs.
Mr Leigh says: “Too many programs start with too little evidence to back them up, and no study of what worked and what did not. That is going to change.”
It would be a delight if the Albanese government embraced the principle and practice behind the assistant minister’s article.
The Evidence-Based Policy Project has over recent years demonstrated the poor policy outcomes delivered by governments not using such an approach.
