The Drum panel 15 Aug 2013

Back to the Northern foodbowl?

Miriam engages Nick Minchin on agricultural & economic policy.

Libs are witholding their costings, but do anyone’s sums add up? And should the PM be touting company tax breaks which echo LNP policies, and could have unintended side-effects for a vulnerable economy in the Northern Territory?

In this episode of The Drum, Kevin Rudd titillates the Top End with the promise of tax cuts, question marks hang over the Coalition’s direct action scheme, and Peter Slipper vows to continue his political career.

Annabel Crabb hosts a panel of Miriam Lyons, former Liberal Finance Minister Nick Minchin and journalist and author Aaron Patrick.
