    Gidday. Great to see someone in your game owning the fact that the current situation is unfair and unsustainable.
    The only point I would make to you is that we don’t all have the same opportunities in life. For all manner of reasons people reach retirement in less than desirable financial straits.
    Superannuation was designed to provide a retirement nestegg so that people could supplement their pension and live a comfortable life upon retirement. It was never intended for the tax advantages of super contributions to be utilised in the accumuklation of an inheritance by the wealthy in our society. I think this issue needs lokking at.
    The article was a good read. You changed my mind on a matter I was fairly sure of. I will write some letters and send off some Emails to the pollies.
    Thanks for presenting the facts and getting a debate going. Our democracy needs more of this. It’s refreshing

    • Hi Ted, thank you for the feedback. We really need to have a national discussion on tax, Superannuation and welfare but to do somproperly we need to take the politics and short-termism out of the debate and focus on what we want to achieve Long term which means taking care of the vulnerable and encouraging self reliance at the same time and not punishing either.
