GST 2017

Reminiscences in a post-truth world

Source: Taxation In Australia Journal Article

Published Date: 1 Nov 2017


At the 2017 National GST Intensive in Melbourne, in September, long-time Institute member and supporter, Tony Long, delivered an elegant, yet wryly amusing, after-dinner address reflecting on a life of service to the A TO. In particular, as a founding member of the GST financial supply team, Tony shares numerous anecdotes that are, in a departure from the usual technical focus, most worthy of sharing with the membership. Resonating most loudly with the audience on the night, Tony's analysis of the parallels drawn by the ABC comedy series Utopia is both amusing and scarily accurate! While the views expressed are those of the author and not the Institute, his speech is commendable, as something a little different and both an enjoyable and enlightening read. Matthew Pawson, President of The Tax Institute
