This week on the CIS Podcast we are joined by CIS taxation expert Robert Carling to talk about his latest report, and Jeremy Sammut puts the election into context.


Tax reform – smaller government and lower taxes – Robert Carling discusses his suggestions for reforming taxes and explains some of the economic benefits of not only replacing existing taxes with more efficient ones, but cutting the overall tax burden. We also discuss the proposals to cut company tax rates and to change the GST.

The election week 1 – We look at the changes in the style of elections in Australia resulting from the 24 hour media cycle and discuss some of the key issues impacting both the Labor party and the Coalition.


This week’s WasteWatch post discusses a government funded coffee cup.
