BusinessThink 2016 Federal Budget Roundtable by UNSW Business School published on 2016-05-04T04:13:20Z Experts from UNSW Australia Business School gave an independent analysis of the Federal Budget 2016 in a roundtable discussion at the Museum of Sydney on 4 May 2016. Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison readied the 2016 Budget with a close eye on the forthcoming election. He didn’t have much room to move – delivering a budget with few surprises and forward projections based on an optimistic outlook. The BusinessThink 2016 Budget roundtable analysed the announcements in Canberra, and new measures presented by Scott Morrison. Moderated by Julian Lorkin, the panel of UNSW Business School experts reacted to key budget measures, such as new tax breaks and regulations, as well as ideas around taxation and stimulating the economy that will shape the Australian business landscape. The panel included: • Professor Richard Holden (looking at the economic impact of the budget). • Professor John Piggott (the budget implications of superannuation and taxation). • Professor Neil Warren (taxation implications for various sectors, including public sector economics, with a special focus on taxation policy and distributional issues). • Associate Professor Fiona Martin (taxation issues such as tax avoidance by multinationals). The academic panel was introduced by Professor Chris Styles, the Dean of the UNSW Business School.
