"NSW Treasurer Perrottet slams Canberra for tax reform drought"(AFR)
For just on two decades Australian Governments have baulked at significant reform of our tax system.
In this era of policy inertia, produced by a dysfunctional political system that is overly responsive to individual economic and social pressure groups, we need a "breakout" process that defines a "common good" solution.
John Key managed to resolve a similar difficulty in NZ by using a "transparent and deliberative process" run with the help of Wellington University. The Australian Government could easily use a Citizens Jury to review and develop a "common good" Australian tax proposal.
