#TheRichCostMore in the media

March 26, 2018

It’s been a big week for us here at Per Capita. We released our report The Cost of Privilege, which detailed how subsidising the rich costs us significantly more than Newstart unemployment benefits, than disability allowances, and even more than the age pension. The report made quite a splash online, with #TheRichCostMore trending nationwide, and was also covered on ABC News and ABC Breakfast, in The GuardianSydney Morning HeraldThe AgeABC OnlineThe Australian, and Pro Bono Australia. Shadow Treasurer Chris Bowen also issued a statement of support. Our small team is rejoicing at the impact of this important research, which shows that we can have an impact in the fight against inequality.
