Stimulus inquiry: make your submission NOW

Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-02-07


Are you critical of the Rudd "stimulus package"?

If so, get your comments to the Senate Finance and Public Administration Committee (fpa.sen@aph.gov.au) before the weekend is over, ideally after looking at the following:

Given the volume of blog comments around the traps, and the speed they were written, if there are few submissions from the Oz blogosphere, we are just "vanity publishers".

I know we won’t be able to get a complete turnaround of policy (apart from being able to say "you were officially warned" if the package is a flop), but there might be a chance that tweaks to make the adiministration of the package better, such as my concern, that cash via state governments who hide infrastructure documents when red tape is being "slashed" is a dumb, dumb, dumb move.

    OK, mine is in.

    I’ll admit I cheated, because I avoided a lot of writing by pointing at submission 5 (prepared by Access Economics for a group of major church charities) and saying “what they said”.
