This paper reviews the impact that the 1988 changes to superannuation and the age pension have had on taxation. Three major studies are reviewed and a new model is offered which enables the long term cost of the taxation support provided to superannuation to be calculated and expressed as a percentage of providing a full age pension to each individual.
