I welcome the day when journos on Twitter (particularly) treat the platform with caution rather than as a primary method of research. And realise why many others (like me!) often find it to be a tedious and unhelpful platform they only use reluctantly.

They were lobbying and making subs before, and industry bodies are continuing to make submissions to the PJCIS. Tbh I would have liked to see big non tech companies say more, given it’s not just going to (only) affect tech companies.

Our current regime is ineffective. All tax policy is ineffective to some degree. So that's a shortsighted objection. Tax policy is always a compromise bc it is made in a political context - which has implications for the prospects of introducing wealth tax too obviously.

Yes obviously, but - your objection to increasing the top marginal tax rate on the basis that it's not a perfect policy just seems very shortsighted.

of course - there are lots of other ways we could and should redistribute wealth (quite obviously). That doesn't mean it's not worth putting forward as a policy. The absence of discussion about raising tax rates for the highest brackets is a deficit in public life, no?

Happy to lower the threshold. Happy to make the demand for 70% to be the top marginal tax rate, if that's the problem.

Why shouldn't run on a tax policy of a top marginal tax rate of 70% for anyone earning over $10m?

Where are the Australian politicians calling for a 70% top marginal tax rate in Australia? I would love to see the polling on this.

I will reach out, but/and I presume he was represented up until this point? I am not sure that will be a legal remedy for this. But I'll reach out.

why bother with tech that could fix problems for someone other than the 1%?
