Post-budget Review – ANU-CPD POLICY DIALOGUE
11:30 am – 2:00 pm
It’s Budget time again, and with the Government and opposition set to take very different tax and expenditure priorities to take into the next election, there is even more at stake than usual. This roundtable will take a step back from the political clamour of budget week to take stock of the bigger picture. When it comes to our budget priorities and processes, what does Australia do particularly well – and where should we look for promising ideas and innovations from our international peers?
To kick off the conversation we will hear from three of Australia’s leading experts on fiscal issues: Greg Smith (Chairperson at the Commonwealth Grants Commission), Miranda Stewart (Professor at the Melbourne University Law School and former head of ANU’s Tax and Transfer Policy Institute) and Peter Whiteford (Professor at ANU’s Crawford School of Public Policy and CPD fellow).
This will be followed by an interactive roundtable conversation between invited experts and leaders from government, business, civil society, academia and the media, hosted by ANU Chancellor Gareth Evans AC QC and moderated by CPD Board Member, Sam Mostyn.
