On behalf of the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance, I would like to warmly invite you all to attend the 3rd Annual Friedman Conference, organised by the Australian Libertarian Society in conjunction with the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance, and with the support of the Institute for Public Affairs and Mannkal Economic Education Foundation.
The Friedman Conference has become the highlight of the Australian Liberty Calendar, with over 200 attendees, and the leading voices for liberty not just from Australia – but around the world: International guests include Dr Tom Palmer from the Atlas Network, viral-video sensation Remy Munfasi, and a libertarian activist from Iran.
The conference will be held in Sydney from May 2-3, and you can find further details at https://www.taxpayers.org.au/events/friedmanconference2015.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available for businesses and organizations that wish greater exposure here.
I know Australia seems very far away for many of you, however we promise the trip will be worth it!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions, and we look forward to seeing some of you in Sydney in May! Tim Andrews – email@example.comRead more
The TaxPayers’ Alliance this week called on all Britain’s political leaders to inject a dose of honesty into the pre-general election debate about future spending cuts, with the publication of comprehensive new research project The Spending Plan.
The Spending Plan sets out comprehensive proposals for savings and reforms that would reduce public spending by 2020 to 35.2 per cent of GDP, the level forecast by the Office for Budget Responsibility. To reach that level, we will need to save £50 billion a year by 2019-20.
Launching The Spending Plan, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said:
“The politicians seeking our votes owe it to all taxpayers to come clean about what spending the country can and cannot afford. This candour has so far been noticeably absent in the election campaign, with politicians failing to acknowledge the dire state of the public finances and instead clambering to make additional spending pledges.
“Our Spending Plan honestly sets out the savings that need to be made by whichever party or parties take power after the election. Today we challenge our political leaders to accept our plan or to produce a similarly rigorous set of proposals of their own which explain where it is that they would reduce spending instead.”

The news got revived thanks to a supporter of Contribuables Associés (roughly translated into English as Taxpayers United), a French group dedicated to fiscal conservatism.Read more
