Are we all Keynesians again ? /

by Carling, Robert.

Publisher: St Leonards, NSW The Centre for Independent Studies 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.cis.org.au/issue_analysis/IA106/IA106.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:10 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "The unfolding global economic debacle has led many governments, including our own, to reach into their policy toolkits for fiscal stimulus measures. In doing so, they have revived fiscal policy as a counter-cyclical tool, which was so much in vogue until the early 1970s that Richard Nixon famously declared We are all Keynesians now. Are we all Keynesians again? At first sight, fiscal pump priming might appear to have a lot going for it in current conditions: inflation is receding; spare capacity is increasing, at least in the major developed economies; and the crisis in the banking system is weakening conventional monetary policy. Even so, the revival of activist fiscal policy ought to be highly controversial because the 1970s and 1980s saw a new consensus emerge that it was ineffective or even damaging. The lessons from that era remain valid today but are being ignored by governments desperate to prop up sagging economies. There is a debate on these issues in the United States, but they have received much less scrutiny in Australia." -- Executive summaryAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Like the curate's egg : a market-based response and alternative to the Bennett Report /

by Sammut, Jeremy.

Publisher: St. Leonards, N.S.W. Centre for Independant Studies 2009Description: PDF.Summary: Instead of centrally planning the future of Australian health care as recommended by the National Health and Hospital Reform Commission, the federal government should establish a national health voucher system and let choice, competition, and patient need determine the right supply of health services required in an ageing Australia. ; The final report of the National Health and Hospital Reform Commission (NHHRC or the Commission), A Healthier Future for All Australians (hereafter the Bennett Report), is like the curate?s egg -- only good in part and therefore spoiled overall. ; The NHHRC has acknowledged the need to ensure health services are responsive to the needs of patients, and has recommended some very limited market-based reforms to improve the efficiency of public hospitals. But, overall, the Commission?s long-term health reform blueprint will not put consumers in charge and ?develop a person-centred health system.?Availability: No items available

The unfinished business of Australian income tax reform /

by Carling, Robert | Centre for Independent Studies.

Publisher: St Leonards, NSW Centre for Independant Studies 2010Description: PDF.Other title: CIS policy monographs ; 108.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2010 Bibliography : p. 19-20Summary: Tax reform is once again squarely on the Australian policy agenda, with the review of Australia's Future Tax System (the Henry Review or the review) now under consideration. Although personalincome tax has been reshaped over many years and undoubtedly lightened over the past 10 years,those changes have left some of the major failings of the personal income tax system in place. Personal income tax reform should be a result of the Henry Review along with the other policy areas it is targeting. A look back at the cumulative effect of changes since 2000 reveals that although tax bracketshave been adjusted through large increases in thresholds and low income tax offset (LITO, marginal rates have not been cut by much, while selective tax breaks have proliferated. The reform agenda is clear: cut marginal rates; implement automatic indexation of thresholds for inflation; scale back the selective breaks; and simplify. While the economic and budget landscape has changed dramatically since the review was launched, the global financial crisis has strengthened the case for reform instead of weakening it. Amidst calls for a more robust framework for future growth, tax reform should be used as a microeconomic policy tool to boost productivity growth and expand the economy?s productive capacity. Personal income tax reform has an important role to play in this effort, as do reforms in other parts of the tax system such as business and state taxation. Tax reform can have any effect on budget revenue that policymakers choose, but there is a strong economic case to further lighten the personal income tax load. If, as seems likely and realistic, this cost to the budget cannot be fully offset elsewhere in the tax system, there are ways to manage the cost through phased implementation of reform and slower growth in government spending over the next several years.Availability: (1)
