The Crawford School of Public Policy presents a seminar on GST reform in Australia – implications of estimating price elasticities of demand for food.

Research findings indicate that the costs of compensating households in the bottom quintile of the income distribution for the loss in consumption induced by the tax increase is relatively small compared to the tax revenue resulting from the reform.

Hear more from Mathias Sinning, a Senior Lecturer at the Tax and Transfer Policy Institute (TTPI) of the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy.

Date: Tuesday 20 September 2016
Time: 12.30pm–1.30pm
Venue: Canberry/Springbank Room, Level 1, JG Crawford Building 132, Lennox Crossing, ANU
