The half-century

I presented a seminar this morning at the University of Queensland, looking at how many taxpayers bunch below the sharp HECS repayment threshold (answer: very few). John Quiggin, Australia’s most famous econ-blogger, was kind enough to come along, and casually revealed over coffee afterwards that he’s having his 50th birthday dinner celebration tonight.

John, happy birthday. If I manage to achieve your output by the time I’m 50, I’ll be a happy man indeed.

    Few people bother to bunch below the HECS threshold – that only delays payment. Plenty bunch below other thresholds, though (the pension assets test, the pension cutout, the parental income test for YA, etc)
