This is a Victorian Fabians Special Event with Terri Butler MP and Andrew Giles MP

How might a new approach to tax achieve greater equality? 

Have you read Terri Butler and Andrew Giles' essay for Australian Fabians on how tax measures can be used to achieve greater equality?  If not, access your copy here.

Now is your chance to hear them discuss their ideas... At this event Terri Butler and Andrew Giles will outline the ideas put forward in their essay, followed by an exploration of its implications with Alison McClelland AM (former Productivity Commissioner) and questions from you! 

In their essay they argue:

"Today, Australians are experiencing record levels of inequality. We are on course for a future which promises a new Gilded Age for a lucky few, at the expense of confined and insecure lives for the many. To reverse this trend to inequality we need more than a set of policies: we need a consistent argument for the changes needed to deliver growth that is inclusive and sustainable. This has to be anchored by a new approach to tax."

Andrew Giles is the Federal Member for Scullin; Terri Butler is the Federal Member for Griffith.
