Tackling Australia’s future tax and transfer policy needs is going to require insight from some of the country’s sharpest minds, a full and frank debate about the issues, engagement from the public, and sandwiches. Really good sandwiches.

In a very special event on Tuesday 16 September, a panel of experts including Commissioner of Taxation Chris Jordan AO will look at how to navigate a course through the choppy seas of politics, taxpayer acceptance and economic good sense, and what a resilient tax system will look like.

Mr Jordan will be joined by panellists Professor Kerrie Sadiq of QUT Business School, Richard Denniss, Executive Director of the Australia Institute and Paul Abbey of PricewaterhouseCoopers. The event will be moderated by Professor Miranda Stewart, Director of the Tax and Transfer Policy Institute at Crawford School.

The panel will debate the impact of technological, global and economic changes on Australia’s tax system and how reforms to the law and operation of the system to address these challenges might be received by taxpayers.

The Lunchbox Debate is part of Policy Outlook 2014, one of the events of ANU Public Policy Week. Attendees will enjoy a very special lunchbox from Autolyse Bakery in Braddon. Your lunchbox will have everything you need for a gourmet feast to fuel you for an exhilarating debate.

Places (and lunchboxes) are strictly limited, so make sure you register now to secure your spot.

The event will be livestreamed for those not able to make it along.
