Vaughan on tax shifting

One of the most recent times I had a conversation with Adam Vaughan (at an Earth day rally last year) I remember him telling me that the Green party had to abandon it’s silly tax shifting idea. Either I’m remembering wrong or the debate itself is continuing to shift:

“Taxing waste is good as it motivates sound environmental stewardship, and those who act responsibly benefit without having to subsidize the wasteful habit of others.”

Welcome, Adam.
