Long overdue : the macroeconomic benefits of paid parental leave /

Publisher: Manuka, A.C.T. The Australia Institute 2009Description: PDF.Other title: The Australia Institute policy brief ; no. 1.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2009Summary: Despite decades of campaigning, Australia is one of only two OECD countries that do not provide comprehensive paid parental leave. As Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard said in October last year: 'This is an issue that's been neglected for a long period of time'. In responding to the release of the recent Productivity Commission (PC) draft report into paid parental leave, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd stated: 'This Australian Government believes the time has come to bite the bullet on this and we intend to do so'. He did not however commit to addressing the issue before the 2009 Federal Budget.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The impact of the recession on women /

by Richardson, David | The Australia Institute.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. The Australia Institute 2010Description: vi, 51 p.: ill. charts, graphs.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: TAI Background paper August 2009Summary: This paper examines the experience of Australian women during recent recessions in order to construct a framework within which the policy response to the current recession can be assessed and improved. The recessions of the early 1980s and the early 1990s are examined and compared with the brief experience so far of the present recession. The paper considers the important issue of the extent to which the stimulus policy emphasises infrastructure and other construction projects, areas that tend to be biased towards the employment of males. The concern here is that women may miss out on job opportunities. A second issue is the fact that women fare differently in recessions from men. Their experience is not necessarily more adverse but the concern is that policies designed to address the hardship of people in the recession need also to take account of women's unique circumstances. That is, policies should be sensitive to gender differences and appropriately targeted. In this paper, the recent state of the economy is considered as being in recession. This term is used loosely and the paper sidesteps discussion of the existence or otherwise of a technical recession. The fact is there has been a serious downturn in the Australian economy with a significant decline in employment opportunities and the forecasts suggest it will get worse.Availability: (1)

Why a carbon tax is good for the hip pocket /

by Denniss, Richard | The Australia Institute | Richardson, David.

Publisher: Manuka, A.C.T. The Australia Institute 2010Description: PDF.Other title: The Australia Institute policy brief ; no. 17.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2010 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: A price on carbon is widely regarded as an essential element of an efficient response to climate change, yet such an approach has been described as a 'great big tax on everything' by opponents. While there is no doubt that putting a price on greenhouse gas emissions will lead to an increase in the price of energy and, to a lesser extent, the price of other products there is also no doubt that if the revenue collected from such a scheme was given back to households, rather than used to compensate polluters, then individuals and families would be financially better off. This paper is based on the assumption that a carbon tax is a simpler and more efficient mechanism for introducing a carbon price than the proposed Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS). The paper presents evidence that directly contradicts the claim that a carbon tax will have a significant impact on the cost of living and, in turn, place undue pressure on Australian families. On the contrary, the paper presents clear evidence that the introduction of a simple carbon tax of Availability: (1)
