This paper was commissioned by the Garnaut Review Update 2011 to analyse the extent to which using some portion of the carbon revenues raised could boost employment and economic activity (relative to other options for the use of carbon price revenues) through addressing existing high effective marginal tax rates and related disincentives. The paper draws on analysis undertaken in 2007, before the development of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, and applies these insights to key results from the Australian Government modelling (2008) undertaken by Treasury.
