Submission to the Productivity Commission’s Review of Horizontal Fiscal Equalization


Australian Society and Politics, Economic Policies | 10th November 2017

The Productivity Commission (PC) is conducting a review of the way in which the revenue from Australia’s goods and services tax (GST) is shared among Australia’s States and Territories, with a view to evening out their capacity to provide a similar range and standard of public services to their citizens, having regard both to differences in the need for and cost of those services among the states and territories, and their capacity to raise revenue. The PC’s Draft Report can be found here; and this is a submission I made to the PC on that draft report. I’ve also written at greater length about this topic here.
