Taxing Times
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  September 14, 2013

It was during the disastrous 1984 election campaign that Bob Hawke seized on the idea of a Taxation Summit rather than put forward definite tax reforms. Recalling his earlier success with the National Economic Summit, the Prime Minister reached for community census. Paul Keating was furious. He could think of nothing worse than thrashing out tax in public.
