The Minerals Resource Rent Tax and other lies

The money is there. So why not start all over again? I have a suggestion. How about a 40% super profits tax applying to all resources? Oh…The ghost of Kevin Rudd ensures that won’t happen.

And while we are at it, why not a super profits tax on all super profits, not just those in the resource sector. The Big 4 banks come to mind.

What capital has joined together, let not Marx rent asunder: Mark 1

This is a link to a rough first draft paper on the taxation of resource rents in Australia.  This gets you to the abstract and then in the middle of the page is a link to download the paper.  That gets you to the rambling 13000 words. http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2190750 Abstract: In this paper I introduce readers to […]

Lessons from the recent resource rent tax experience in Australia

Yours truly in the Canberra Law Review last year. Since posting the link it has been put behind a password. WTF is that about? So here is a link to the whole edition. My article starts at page 159.  http://www.canberra.edu.au/faculties/busgovlaw/attachments/pdf/CLR-2011-Vol.-10-2-Symposium-edition.pdf

The recent resource rent tax experience in Australia

This is a paper I wrote and published a few months ago on the recent resource rent tax experience in Australia. I argue that the left should be involved in the debates and battles over tax and tax policy as part of the wider struggle for a new society in which production is organised democratically to satisfy human need.

BHP’s $22 billion profit – please don’t tax them Mr Swan

Maybe it is time to squeeze the mining companies until their pips squeak.

Some praise

A comment from an attendee at today’s Justice Connections conference, which I could not attend but to which I had submitted a paper. ‘Justice Kirby commended your article on the failed Mineral Resource Rent Tax/Super Profits Tax, so congratulations.’

Welfare meets Workchoices

It is workers who can stop the neoliberal Workchoices style attacks of Labor and the Liberals on the unemployed and the disabled and in doing that defend their own living standards.

Resource rents and company tax rates: tax big business

Almost half of all big business pays no income tax and those that do mostly pay much less than the notional 30 percent headline rate. Tax business and the rich.

Will the big miners dump Gillard too?

Nationalise the mines under workers’ control.
