Business pulls out the carbon fiddle

Business wants quick repeal of carbon pricing and then a Productivity Commission review of its replacement. Not only do we not have time, we know what the commission thinks, anyway.

The submissions on the government’s Emission Reduction Fund are now starting to flow out into the public domain. They show a group of business stakeholders highly aware that this abatement auction purchasing process will be rather more complex than eBay. Slogans will not cut it anymore.

Both the Australian Industry Group and the Business Council of Australia are, in their own polite way, pushing the government to go back to the drawing board altogether, via the Productivity Commission.
