Most Australians Expect Negative Financial Impact from Carbon Tax

THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS I’M SHORT THE AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR …

 

In the online survey of a representative sample of 1,505 Australian adults, seven-in-ten respondents (70%) think the carbon tax will have a negative financial impact on their families, while only ten per cent foresee a positive impact.

Only 17 per cent of Australians say they have a high level of understanding of how the carbon tax works, while 52 per cent claim to have a medium level of understanding. A majority of Australians (50%) would prefer to protect the environment, even at the risk of hampering economic growth, while just over one-in-four (27%) would prefer to foster economic growth, even at the risk of damaging the environment.
