Waiting for flood or bushfire recovery funds...? Better live in the 'right' electorate!

Friday, 9 April 2021 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Jacques has a conversation with Matt Lloyd-Cape from the Per Capita
think tank about their research regarding the allocation and distribution of
Federal funds  to victims of the 2019-20 bushfires.

Barely half of the promised billions was spent by the end of 2019 and - as we're now getting
accustomed to with the present LNP federal government - 3/4 of all funds
went to NSW and of that only 1% to Labor electorates...

Rorting and pork-barrelling seem to have consistently been operative principles of
the distribution of grants and other funds by the present government.




Friday 10:00am to 10:30am
Think Again offers weekly conversations and reflections about current events, trends and public pronouncements on contemporary and emerging issues. The show moves beyond what we read and hear via the public and ‘social’ media, to invite alternative possibilities to guide our thinking, living and organising.
