BusinessThink Federal Budget Roundtable

What now for the last Federal budget before the 2016 election?



Experts from UNSW Business School will give an independent analysis of the Federal Budget 2016 in a roundtable discussion in Sydney’s CBD on 11 May 2016.

Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison has been readying the 2016 Budget with a close eye on promised tax cuts, versus balancing the budget.

The BusinessThink 2016 Budget roundtable will analyse the announcements in Canberra, and new measures presented by Scott Morrison. Moderated by Julian Lorkin, the panel of UNSW Business School experts will react to key budget measures.

The panel included:

  • Professor Neil Warren - who will provide a full assessment of the taxation implications for various sectors, including public sector economics, with a special focus on taxation policy and distributional issues.
  • Associate Professor Fiona Martin - who is an internationally recognised expert on taxation issues, especially charities and not-for-profits.
  • Professor Richard Holden - who will look at the budget from an economic perspective.
  • Professor John Piggott - who will look at the budget implications of superannuation and taxation.

The academic panel was introduced by Professor Chris Styles, the Dean of the UNSW Business School.
