Henry Ergas Article
My article is quite short this week because there is in my view an absolute must read article in yesterday's Australian newspaper by Henry Ergas.
The article deals with the tax concessions for super. I have mentioned here before that super isn't tax effective for low to middle income earners (and people who are paid a lot more but pay less tax because of Family Tax Benefit or Child Care Benefit or other tax offset) but no one really wants to discuss this.
Ergas takes my thoughts and looks at super for high income earners and basically says it stinks from a tax perspective.
It will be fascinating to see how people react to this article which you can read here (you will need to subscribe if you don't already have one):
