Jim Chalmers latest suggestion is for super funds to respond to systemic risks around affordable housing. “If we fail to act… we will face the prospect of an economy that won’t sustain the growth that we need, and this will all be to the detriment of a good, dignified retirement for as many Australians as possible”. Surely helping young Australians provide their own secure housing option must be the first best policy. Why have unelected, union appointed, faceless board members of super funds decide where you can live? Our Leg Up is trying to help young Australians help themselves into a home to provide their own dignity in retirement.
