Budget Monitor

Budget Monitor is the only source of accurate and independent projections of Federal Budget trends in Australia. Governments often have an incentive to hide potential bad news, and sometimes even good news, thus Budget statements rarely tell the full story. Time and again Budget Monitor has alerted financial markets and economists to developments not spelled out in official statements. Produced twice per year, Budget Monitor's track record of accuracy is renowned.
