This text is a component of an extensive research project commissioned by the Foundation on the macroeconomic implications of a possible shift towards a greater reliance on indirect taxation. The aim of the authors from Macquarie University was to dispel the uncertainty of the implications of such shift on such variables as the growth rate, the level of employment, the rate of inflation, interest rates and the value of the Australian dollar.
