In our last Summer Spoke for a while, I joined Ben Eltham to talk about the first parliamentary sitting week in Canberra. The tax reform debate keeps moving along (now without a white paper process), Labor affirms its intention to fully fund Gonski, the Chief Scientist stakes his reputation on a ‘zero emissions’ economy and the same-sex marriage debate heats up – should there be a plebiscite or a free vote in parliament?

I joined Ben Eltham in the studio to talk all things tax reform, including multinational tax avoidance, our revenue problem (yes, it does exist) and whether cutting the company tax rate will actually create jobs. Other things covered include the innovation agenda, funding cuts to the CSIRO and the proposed regressive cuts to paid parental leave.
