There’s a round of shock-horror in the media that outgoing Future Fund chairman David Murray thinks that the carbon and mining taxes are bad.
I’ll leave aside the mining tax for a minute, and concentrate on the carbon price; and let’s remind ourselves – Murray doesn’t believe in the science. He’s said so publicly before.
As such, his argument against the carbon tax comes down to “I don’t think there’s enough of a problem to justify doing anything”.
As such, his initial premise is simply wrong, and any conclusions he draws from it can be summarily dismissed.
