Budget 2017: The Return of the Populist ‘Fair Go’ "Big Government" Budget

Research output: Book/ReportReports

Abstract

Against all of this, public confidence in the capacity of government to address policy fundamentals is very low. Two surveys conducted in 2016 and 2017 by the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis (IGPA) and Ipsos suggest that a majority of Australian citizens only trust Federal Government to tackle issues of defence and national security. Notably there has been a significant decline in perceptions of the government’s ability to manage economic matters which will be of concern to the Prime Minister (see Figure 1). Political trust in political leaders and the institutions of politics matters, as it provides the glue that holds together the Australian political system. So how has the Turnbull Government responded to these economic and social pressures in Budget 2017?
