A future-focused economy
Smart and sustainable economic management is imperative to maintain Australia's competitiveness and future-proof our economy.
The decarbonisation of the global economy provides great opportunities for Australia. We have everything needed to be a renewable energy powerhouse – sun, wind, critical minerals and transferable skills and technology. We need more of the long-term thinking that led to the Perth-Kalgoorlie pipeline and the North West Shelf.
The major parties shy away from discussions about tax and debt. Our tax system is complex and requires reform so it is fit for purpose, looking ahead to the social and demographic changes of the next decade. This requires deep thinking about major issues including our national debt, housing affordability, and the impact of an aging population, and how we address these issues for our children’s generation.
