Recession recovery: Personal tax cuts central to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg’s economic plan

angel may

Australians will likely receive fast-tracked personal tax cuts as the nation’s treasurer plots a path out of recession.

Josh Frydenberg is stitching together a federal budget in the face of a whopping seven per cent collapse in economic activity.

More than one million people are unemployed and another 400,000 could join the dole queue before Christmas.

Mr Frydenberg is planning to speed up income tax relief in the October budget to breathe life into the battered economy.

“If you put more money into people’s pockets there will be more spending and more spending will create jobs,” he told the Nine Network on Thursday.

But national accounts figures released this week show people are unable or unwilling to spend money during the coronavirus pandemic and are instead saving as much as they can.

The treasurer believes easing social and business restrictions will give people the confidence to open their wallets.

How Wearing A Face Mask Boosts Your Personal Brand

angel may

Wearing a face mask can deliver proven health benefits. In a Centers for Disease Control press release, CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield said, “We are not defenseless against Covid-19. Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus—particularly when used universally within a community setting.” And Bryan Robinson points to three studies that suggest the reasons behind this, further demonstrating why a high-quality face covering can slow the spread.

And if that weren’t enough, there’s an economic benefit too. Research from Goldman Sachs suggests a national mask mandate would slow the growth rate of new coronavirus infections, preventing a 5% GDP loss by averting additional lockdown measures. 

Those are compelling findings, but my interest in face mask wearing goes beyond the vast health and economic benefits. There are personal branding
