ESA National Economic Panel Polls
Efficiency of tax incentives - February 2016
Our first poll of the ESA National Economic Panel (NEP) for 2016 was inspired by the innovation agenda that has - since PM Turnbull came into power late last year - been propelled into the limelight and is fast becoming embedded in popular public/economic/policy discourse.
In the spirit of 'agility', we 'disrupted' our panellists and used our polling platform to 'crowd-source' their opinions on a key policy lever designed to stimulate innovation - tax incentives.
Specifically, the panel was polled on the following -
Proposition: "New tax incentives for investments in technology and innovation business and start-ups are likely to be inefficient."
