Crucial aspects of superannuation policy and proposed changes are examined in papers published in the forthcoming edition of the Centre for Independent Studies (CIS) quarterly journal, Policy.
The first of the four papers, by CIS Research Manager Simon Cowan outlines superannuation’s failure to reduce pension bills or make more people self-sufficient. CIS Research Fellow Michael Potter analyses the problems with the proposed increase to the superannuation guarantee. CIS Senior Fellow Robert Carling investigates how super should be taxed. Terrence O’Brien outlines the case for grandfathering any changes.
Key points of the four Policy papers are below, and the full papers can be accessed online in aspecial pre-publication set.
Building a better superannuation system: Simon Cowan
Don’t increase super guarantee: Michael Potter
How should super be taxed? Robert Carling
Why we must grandfather superannuation changes: Terrence O’Brien
Grandfathering usually carries some cost in complexity and always delays revenue gains. But for measures claimed to improve fairness and longer-term sustainability, grandfathering is worth exploring to achieve successful implementation.
