In Favour of a UBI

An initiative that might ultimately arise out of coronavirus would be the implementation of a Universal Basic Income (UBI). This scheme could run along the following lines: all existing welfare is replaced with government instead providing each adult citizen a sum of, say $1,000 per month (the UBI). This sum could be fixed to inflation;… Continue reading In Favour of a UBI

Why Society>Economics

Since Tucker Carlson’s January 3 monologue, an old clash has re-emerged between free market-oriented conservatives, and traditional conservatives who favour (where necessary), more government intervention in economic affairs. In essence, this intra-conservative dispute hinges on whether national interests should supersede economic dogma, when market forces harm the nation. The battle lines have thus been drawn:… Continue reading Why Society>Economics

Capitalism and Socialism: The Trade Off

Increasingly, there are two camps that dominate politicised economic discussions. On one side are socialists that decry capitalism’s corruptibility, and purport to favour a people based economic approach. On the other are Right-Liberals, who gloat over socialist failures, and purport to favour a freedom based economic approach. But outside of this narrowly constructed framework, there exists an… Continue reading Capitalism and Socialism: The Trade Off

The Greens propose a universal basic income

Earlier this week the Greens proposed establishing a Universal Basic Income (UBI). This was much to the chagrin of the political establishment, which accused the Greens of lacking seriousness and a fitness to govern. I am no fan of the Greens, however, this idea is no ‘leftie pinko nonsense’. True, there are legitimate concerns over… Continue reading The Greens propose a universal basic income

“Immigrants do jobs that Australians won’t”

The case that high immigration=better economic outcomes, is pushed by free market advocates who tell us globalism is destiny. But when real scrutiny is applied, this hypothesis quickly crumbles. The idea that “immigrants do jobs that Australian’s won’t,” is not only demeaning to our impoverished native born, but in a time where political alliances are… Continue reading “Immigrants do jobs that Australians won’t”

The disaster that is the NBN

The disaster of the NBN speaks volumes as to how inefficiently government spends money, regardless of party affiliation. As our government is a patently ineffective, wasteful body, it should be given less tax- payer money to spend, not more. This isn’t to argue government shouldn’t be investing in public infrastructure, nor deny that problems engulfing… Continue reading The disaster that is the NBN

The trouble with Elizabeth Warren

A champagne socialist can be described as one who “espouses socialist ideals while enjoying a wealthy and luxurious lifestyle.” As Elizabeth Warren rails against capitalism, free markets and individualism, while simultaneously enjoying the fruits off a system she purportedly detests, she fits this definition. Statistics are useful in showcasing this hypocrisy between Mrs Warren’s lifestyle, and… Continue reading The trouble with Elizabeth Warren

Cory Bernardi slams wasteful foreign spending in the Senate

The Aussie Conservative Blog supports the tenacious, principled, consistently conservative political activism of Cory Bernardi, along with his Australian Conservatives party. And in his recent speech, Bernardi is more than correct: how can a nation continue to fund futile, globalist economic endeavours, while we are incapable of pulling our own finances into order? We hear… Continue reading Cory Bernardi slams wasteful foreign spending in the Senate

Goldfields to get cashless welfare card after report finds drinking, drug use down

Since I blogged about the trialing of cashless welfare cards for Centrelink recipients back in November 2015, results have been positive. The cards have been found to reduce alcohol and drug consumption across 2 different communities, with the Goldfields now picked to conduct this experiment. Barring future findings of this trial contradicting earlier results, these cards… Continue reading Goldfields to get cashless welfare card after report finds drinking, drug use down

Right- wing populism vs the minimum wage

While traditionally Right- wing arguments against the minimum wage are renowned, modern times have showed that for conservative parties to gain success amidst an increasingly Islamized, diversified West, they must court the support of native, blue collar populations. So how could this pivot be made in regards to the minimum wage, without entirely disregarding long held… Continue reading Right- wing populism vs the minimum wage

Welfare cuts bill killed off by One Nation

For a populist/ conservative politician looking to seek appeal amongst the broader electorate, this approach from One Nation is spot on. Radical economic liberals aside, who could dispute this reasoning used by One Nation? “Welfare cuts bill killed off by One Nation”, Sky News, 21 March, 2017: Pauline Hanson has killed off the federal government’s hopes of… Continue reading Welfare cuts bill killed off by One Nation

The argument for fiscal conservativism

In modern times, debt crises’ grappling Western countries have risen to become forefront political issues. Given this environment, I will outline my case as to why lesser government spending is generally the appropriate course of action. In our increasingly diverse countries, all rational individuals remain united by a shared driving factor: self interest. Fundamentally, all people… Continue reading The argument for fiscal conservativism
