    The Budget 2016 - Same old? Or new direction?

    Much hype and expectation on "Budget Eve". Will Turnbull-Morrison deliver? Anybody care to hazard a guess? I have listened in at tonight's QandA and a few comments touched on early concerns and expectations. "The SINKs and DINKs will have to shoulder the Load", one comment read. That seems to...

    Budget 2015

    Tomorrow is the Big Day - again. Has Hockey learned from last year's PR disaster? Given the overall less favourable state of the economy, can he offer a better balance of wants and needs? Can he find a fairer social balance? And how will the Senate view and vote? Anybody care to offer an...

    Budget 2013

    I had waited for someone else to commence a thread on the budget, being delivered tomorrow night, in less than 24 hours. I am unsure whether the lack of such a thread is due to a general malaise in our ASF community or to challenged moderation. I am a bit beyond trying to stimulate people...

    The government's dodgy budget savings

    First on the list is the accelerated transfer of unclaimed monies from lost super, bank and insurance acounts. By counting it as recurrent revenue and spending it, the government is...

    No Surplus Anytime Soon

    Wayne Swan may be committed to a budget surplus, but he should keep softening his rhetoric since the weekly Government Debt report shows the annual deficit being maintained at about $47 Billion for the past 3 months. The short term trend in debt issuance is similarly grim. Over the past 3 weeks...

    Will the budget return to surplus?

    Was just having a ponder before (as one does on a Sunday night) and was debating whether the current Labor government will be able to return the budget to surplus by 2012/13? IMO - most certainly not. I don't think they could have ever achieved it under normal circumstances - and now with the...

    Federal Budget 2009 highlights

    Thought it may be appropriate to get a thread started so we can all comment on what changes are made and how it will affect each of us....regardless of all the so called leaked information....there is usually some really bad stuff in there that has not been leaked... cheers

    The budget, what's your thoughts?

    As the thread title says, whats your point of view. I think that its a fairly good budget. Education gets a big shot in the arm, thats always good IMO. Tax cuts are good for us tax payers. Discuss.

    Budget 2006

    Well the budget's out....and more far reaching than the conservative budget the forecasters were expecting. Top rate of tax $150K, 30c per dollar up to $75k and cuts to tax to super!! Might not be so attractive to holders of Great Southern and other tax effective investments and also...
