One year with no carbon price wrecking ball

On the first anniversary of the carbon tax, forecast economic devastation simply hasn't happened. Instead, decent growth has been a win for treasury.

Today marks the one-year anniversary that Australia has had a price on carbon and the economy is still cooking with gas.

There is no sign of a wrecking ball, a jobs wipe-out, ghost towns or an economic catastrophe if one looks at the hard data and facts that have been available since July 1, 2012.
