Daley, John & Brendan Coates: Why every generation feels entitled

John Daley & Brendan Coates

Why every generation feels entitled‘, The Conversation, 15 December 2016

Refers to the Grattan Institute’s report Age of Entitlement, on age-based tax breaks, which concluded ‘senior Australians get tax breaks unavailable to younger Australians worth A$1 billion a year – and that’s not even counting the tax breaks from superannuation’. Discusses age-based attitudes to this state of affairs. Has historical graphs (30 to 40 years) showing rates of income tax, the proportion of seniors paying tax, rate of taxation of older households, budget transfers, costs of servicing a mortgage, accumulation of health by young households.
