At a time when the gap between rich and poor is growing, the Australian Greens want to ensure we all get a fair share of Australia's prosperity. We have demonstrated our economic responsibility by supporting the Government in managing the global financial crisis, savings thousands of jobs and small businesses. We negotiated to improve the stimulus package including providing a $500m community jobs fund.

We strongly support a tax on the mining industry's super profits which if properly applied would generate revenue for the benefit of all Australians into the future. Along with many respected economists we support a sovereign wealth fund being established from the proceeds of the mining boom to help address the two speed economy affecting many business and jobs in non-mining industries such as tourism and manufacturing. 

The Australia Greens were instrumental in the most important economic reform in recent times, the Clean Energy Future package, which is a key step in transforming Australia's economy into a clean, zero carbon 21st century economy and seizing the opportunities of creating jobs and investment.
