Why Is Tax Reform So Difficult? 

Join us as Paul Tilley presents the findings from his latest book Mixed Fortunes: A History of Tax Reform in Australia. 

Australia's history is sprinkled with attempts at tax reform - some successful, some not. Paul will explore a few key questions addressed in his book including, What makes a reform exercise work - or not? How do we assess the quality of Australia's tax reforms? And what lessons can be drawn from these experiences to help shape future tax reform exercises?
