Voting again beats minority government – Paul Kerin

In an article in today’s Australian, I expand on the argument I made on the Adelaide Economic Policy Forum article last Monday (available here) that unless one party can form a majority Federal government, it would be in the public interest to go back to the polls. The key point is that a majority government (regardless of which major party forms it) would reduce policy and other key uncertainties and thereby encourage investment and consumption spending, resulting in higher  economic growth. Today’s Australian article, titled “Let’s have another vote to end uncertainty”, is available here.
