Let’s have a great big new tax – on the rich

Let’s be clear here. Australia’s budget deficit is around ten percent of GDP, a very modest amount compared to other developed countries, and half of it a consequence of Abbott government decisions. Australia is a low tax and a low spending country. If we moved to the average tax rate of OECD countries we’d raise about an extra $100 billion a year. It is time not just to chant tax the rich but to mobilise around it as part of a wider push for socially progressive policies on jobs, the environment, indigenous Australians, asylum seekers, gays and lesbians, public health, public education, public transport, disability, pensions, child care and the like.

Why won’t Labor tax the rich?

Soak the rich till their pips squeak. Labor won’t tax the rich because it believes in the primacy of profit and the lie of the trickle down theory – what’s good for the rich is supposedly good for the rest of us.

Health care: reform or revolution?

Neo-liberalism, not need, drives health care reform. Let’s tax the rich to pay for universal health care as part of a move to a just and equitable society.
