by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2008 Bibliography p. 6Summary: A well-designed system of paid maternity, paternity and parental leave contributes to social inclusion, a priority of the new Australian Government. There is a need to recognise the value of care, and its important impact on children's development. It is also important to promote female workforce participation, because this has positive impacts on the individual, families and on society. The challenges of the ageing of the population also make it an economic imperative to improve the human capital of the entire workforce and increase female workforce participation.Availability: (1)

Income contingent loans for paid parental leave . /

by Chapman, Bruce | Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy esearch | Higgins, Tim.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy Research 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://cepr.anu.edu.au/pdf/DP596.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:14 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response School to work SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: "In early 2008 the federal government instructed the Productivity Commission (PC) to enquire into the social and economic policy issue of paid parental leave (PPL). In their draft report, the PC (2008) has called for a taxpayer funded scheme of 18 weeks duration, despite Australian governments having so far resisted the introduction of a broad grants-based system. A case for government subsidy of PPL can be made on the basis that the social benefits exceed the advantages accruing directly to families. However, as there are also indisputable private benefits accruing to the parents taking leave, there is a case for private contributions. We identify a market failure in that commercial banks will not provide funds in the absence of collateral due to repayment uncertainty during parental leave, a situation quite similar to the market failure inherent with respect to the financing of tuition for higher education (Gans, 2008). To address this financing impasse, we consider how an income contingent loan (ICL) could be used as an optional supplement to a taxpayer funded PPL scheme. Moral hazard and adverse selection are critical policy issues and these are addressed in the scheme design by: restricting loan duration and size; restricting eligibility to parents with workforce attachment; reducing minimum repayment thresholds to below those of HECS; imposing a loan surcharge, and; making the debt an obligation of both parents. We explain and present simulations of debt, repayment and subsidies for different households. The results show that an optional top-up ICL would not require major contributions from taxpayers, yet would introduce flexibility and choice, and provide consumption-smoothing and lifetime income distribution advantages over possible alternatives." -- AbstractAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

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).

Making the case for universal childcare /

by Ben-Galim, Dalia | Institute for Public Policy Research.

Publisher: London, U.K. Institute for Public Policy Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011 Bibliography pp. 18-19Summary: This paper makes the economic case for universal childcare for preschool-aged children. On the basis of new cost-benefit analysis, we show that universal childcare pays a return to the government of 20,050 (over four years) in terms of tax revenue minus the cost of childcare for every woman who returns to full-time employment after one year of maternity leave. We therefore argue that the provision of universal childcare should be a strategic priority for public service and welfare reform in the UK.Availability: (1)
