Let’s have a Royal Commission into how politics operates and whose interests are being served
Most politicians are good people who intend to serve the community’s best interest. Unfortunately, a combination of internal party politics, funding requirements and a desire to gain and hold power often stymie the intent.   Good intent and perverting pressures exist in most areas of human endeavour. Training, laws & regulations, and various oversight bodies exist to minimise unacceptable practices in business and the professions. If these fail a Royal Commission is established.   We need an effective code of practice, integrity oversight and transparency of potential conflicts of interest for our politicians. We need a Royal Commission into how politics operates!

A Statement of Public Interest (SPI) with all Bills to Parliament
An SPI would answer six questions that every member of Parliament and citizen is entitled to know before a Bill is considered:    1. Need  Why is the policy needed?    2. Objectives  What is the policy’s objective in terms of the public interest?    3. Options  What alternative policies and mechanisms were considered?    4. Analysis  What were the pros/cons and benefits/costs of each option considered?    5. Pathway  What are the timetable and steps for the policy’s rollout and who will administer it?    6. Consultation  Were the views of affected stakeholders sought and considered?    This would encourage good policy making.   https://evidencebasedpolicy.com.au/

Improve Boardroom Psychological Safety
A new report from People + Science on boardroom psychological safety and performance highlights that only 4 out of 10 board members feel psychologically safe and only 3 out of 10 feel high levels of trust for their fellow decision-makers. Psychological safety has been found to be highly correlated to quality boardroom decision-making, as such psychological safety is necessary for board effectiveness. To download the full report, head to https://www.6peas.com.au/product/people-science-psychological-safety-benchmark-2020-2021-aust/

Ideas on how to resolve the debt problem?
Federal Government debt is currently $630bn and is expected to climb to $1trn by 2026, creating budget problems and a debt that future generations will need to pay.   Recent history predicts that no political party will have the ability to initiate the structural tax changes needed for post-COVID budget repair due to fear of voter anger.   It is in our best interest as a community to contribute ideas on what should be done to raise more revenue, reduce costs and produce common interest solutions. Let's put together some ideas to help our governments make the hard decisions.Your ideas?
