Tax Reform: An opportunity to find the ‘Common Good’

post-image

When change is required, the government of a democracy should seek the ‘common good’ solution - one that appeals to the majority and is least problematic to others.  

Reform in Australia is inherently challenging as the ‘politics’ at both state and federal level can de-rail change, even if majority community support exists.  

Tax Reform in Australia has been held back for too long by political wrangling and manoeuvring.  

Our politicians should put their egos aside and seek community input to determine a tax reform package that is viewed as a ‘common good’ and then get on with implementation.  



What do you think?

There are good reasons to be optimistic about reform now in Australia
