I’ve written a piece for Eureka Street setting out the case for reform of our political finance law. The prominence of private money in Australian politics creates a risk of undue influence and contributes to political inequality. These problems require a legislative response: a more stringent disclosure regime and limits on political donations and expenditure. However, such reforms may raise constitutional issues.
