Robert Carling and I have an op-ed in today’s Australian arguing that a parliamentary budget office modelled on the US Congressional Budget Office is the wrong model for reforming Australia’s fiscal policy framework.

I will be discussing these issues as part of a panel at this year’s Australian Conference of Economists on the topic of ‘Monetary-Fiscal Interactions: How to Improve Policy Outcomes.’ Other panellists include Don Brash (ex-RBNZ), Jacopo Cimadomo (ECB), Carl Wash (UCSC) and Jan Libich (La Trobe).
