This course develops an intensive, 'hands on' approach to tax policy and gives you an insight into the tax issues which will be of concern in the new millennium. It offers systematic immersion in the techniques of practical, policy driven, tax problem solving. This course exposes participants to a bird's eye view of major policy questions like the balance between government and the market, the mix of the Australian tax structure and key tax design options. But the main emphasis is on enhancing your ability to actually use policy tools for systematic analysis. To this end, we will be re-visiting much of what you have already learnt in your economics related courses. However, now we will require you to take those tools and apply them specifically to a range of tax policy problems.
