MYEFO charts no return to surplus this decade or the next, Stephen Anthony in the Australian Financial Review, 16 December 2021

In this Australian Financial Review opinion piece, Stephen Anthony suggests that the Australian Government’s Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO) demonstrates the imperative that we make sensible fiscal choices now, to avoid hard decisions later. He argues we should make it easier for individuals to provide for themselves and their dependents in retirement living and disability care. He says the community is living beyond its means.
