Abstract

As we anticipate Budget 2018-19, coming up on 8 May, it is timely to examine Australia’s budget process. Australia has been a leader in good budget processes, but it is two decades since the Charter of Budget Honesty was enacted in 1998 and this reputation has faded. Public trust in government is at a low ebb, as polls suggest growing disillusionment among voters.
