Regulations that worked in 1901 do not work now

Regulations that worked in 1901 don’t work now

According to the Institute of Public Affairs,

“The Commonwealth Government in 1901 had 258 pages of regulatory Acts. Today it has more than 100,000 pages.

The Rudd/Gillard Government has introduced 20,000 regulations and regulatory changes to expand its controls over businesses and individuals.”

No wonder it’s so difficult to run a business effectively. In 1901, the government spent 3% of what we as taxpayers earned. Now it’s closer to 25%. But hey, at least we’re getting value for our money…. aren’t we?

Do we get value for money from our Government?
