There is such a thing as a free lunch

At least when dangerous ideas are on the menu

The UNSW tax and business law school is holding a “festival of dangerous tax ideas” on May 30. On the agenda are, a land tax, a “Robin Hood” carbon tax, doubling the GST base and using a wealth tax to fund a basic income. The  event, including lunch and papers is free. “In any national debate there are sometimes elephants in the room, ideas that are there but so “outrageous” that no-one talks about them,” organisers say. Curiously, there is no mention of a tax-credit for self-funded retirees who invest in elephants.
