Show Notes
Our final radio show on 3CR sees Karl going out on a win, discussing the Windfall Gains Tax legislation that passed last week. Along the way you’ll hear analysis of Australia’s record land price inflation, why we need to switch taxes off the productive sector and onto monopoly interests plus a statement from Saul Eslake at the Housing Affordability and Supply Inquiry on how the mechanics of a land tax works. We finish up admiring the founders of 3CR and their establishment of long term community infrastructure and its parallels to Georgist thinking. Long live the beloved airwaves of 3CR.
