An objective for super?
A podcast with Brendan Coates, Australian Perspectives Fellow. Over the course of the past year, the superannuation debate has progressed from tax breaks to what the objective of the superannuation system should be. Legislation setting out the Government proposed objective is currently before Parliament but has faced fierce opposition from Australia’s super industry. With our super system now worth more than $2 trillion, and super tax breaks costing $25 billion a year, there’s a lot at stake. In this podcast we talk through the issues, and what impact setting an objective for superannuation will have on the retirement incomes of all Australians.
