Guaranteed minimum income and the environment: Just polemic

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

[Extract] The Problem with Social Security

The ascent to power in 1983 of the Hawke/Keathing Government has led to substantial changes to the Australian welfare state. There has, for example, been a significant narrowing of eligibility for some social security payments which Australians have come to define as part of their social citizenship. The pressure on the Federal Government to contain social welfare spending is the result of long running and ongoing attacks on the tax base by those committed to economic rationalist agendas.
