Money in your pocket, or money spent where it's needed?

That's one way of describing the question that will be posed on Insight tonight, SBS TV 7.30pm Tuesday 4 May.

Another way of putting the question is "the money or the box".

We recorded it last night at the SBS in Sydney.

Among the guests - former Treasury Secretary John Stone, "Krugman of the antipodes" John Quiggin, "responsible tax payer" Eva Cox, "develop the North" Bob Katter, "tax facts" Neil Warren, and Mike Keating, the head of Prime Minister and Cabinet under Paul Keating, who has authored a paper entitled The case for increased taxation.

It is a very good program (even if the producer has to say so himself).
