      • Budget pressures on Australian governments

        Australian government budgets are under pressure. Our analysis of the budget positions of the Commonwealth and the three major states shows that rising costs, a shortfall in tax revenues, declining minerals prices and big political promises could see a combined annual deficit of around 4 per cent of GDP by 2023. The greatest single pressure comes from growing health spending. Balancing budgets is difficult but it can be done – provided governments are prepared to make tougher choices than they have made over the past decade.

          • The Progressive Budget: A Duty to the Poor

            Also referred to as "The People's Budget," or "The Budget 4 All," the U. S. House of Representatives Progressive Caucus budget would balance the nation's budget in 10 years, mostly through defense cuts and tax increases on the wealthiest Americans. The Progressive Caucus consists of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 75 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, including chairs Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and aims to "give voice to the needs and aspirations of all Americans and to build a more just and humane society." In an interview conducted during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, Ellison explains how the budget works and why he feels it's the most moral way to solve the country's formidable economic woes. "The Budget 4 All is based on not only fiscally sound principles, but also morally sound principles because we do believe, to whom much is given, much is expected," Ellison, a Muslim, said. "We do believe that we have a duty to the poor. We do believe that we need to make sure that the workman is paid for his hire. And it is the kind of thing that people, who have a faith orientation, no matter what particular religious group they come from, will recognize."

              In attempt to recover from one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression, California annually makes cuts to the budget to keep the state afloat. While most departments have had to layoff employees, consolidate agencies and shutdown programs, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has had a steady increase in their budget. While the state wastes money on an ineffective and expensive prison system, this in turn causes more burdens for California. For my project, I propose an answer that has the potential to resolve the states’ financial issues. Graphic Design Thesis Project, California College of the Arts. Spring 2012

                Fairy Tales, the Medicaid Credit Card, Formula One Racing & Pork - During the 82nd Legislative Session and the subsequent special session, Texas lawmakers dealt with the budget shortfall and balanced the budget with no new taxes and no tax increases, but $12 billion in cuts were the one-time federal stimulus funds used to balance the 2010-2011 biennium budget. The 2012-2013 budget is balanced with some cuts, tax payment speed ups, accounting gimmicks, and deferrals. In other words, the leaders of our state government and key legislators once more engaged in “fairy tale budgeting” by declaring a balanced budget. The budget may be balanced, but the Rainy Day Fund (or the People’s Savings Account) is spent! Delaying the $2.3 billion payment for public school funding and charging $4.8 billion to a “Medicaid credit card” means the budget is short by $7.1 billion. That’s right! Texas has a planned budget deficit for 2013! If kicking the can down the road and delaying tough decisions is wrong in Washington, DC, what makes it right for Texas?

Simon Furlong, Sales Trader at Spreadex comments. Well, firstly they need to act in unison and speak with one voice. Too much in the last there has been conflicting views from different European countries. The response has been slow underestimating the gravity of the problem. The Eurobond would be a bit step politically but might help.
