The Case for a CGT in a Progressive Economy

Deborah Russell - Do the Job Properly: the Case for a CGT in a Progressive Economy

Tuesday 4th June

The government has introduced a minimal capital gains tax, to deal with rampant property price growth in Auckland? But do we need a more extensive CGT? Should we introduce a CGT for reasons of economic policy, or for fairness, or for both? This talk explains our current CGT rules, and looks at whether we should extend them. In particular, should extending the CGT rules be part of a left wing response to growing inequality in our country

Deborah Russell is a senior lecturer in taxation at Massey University. She holds a PhD in Philosophy from the Australian National University. Deborah was the Labour candidate for Rangitīkei in the 2014 general election.

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
