From sports rorts to regional slush funds, there seems to be no end of pork-barrelling scandals, where governments have been caught using public money to target certain voters for political gain.
This week the Grattan podcast discusses the second report in the New Politics series, on what governments can do to stop pork-barrelling.
Host Kat Clay is joined by Grattan’s CEO, Danielle Wood, and her co-authors Kate Griffiths and Anika Stobart from Grattan’s Budgets and Government team.
