ABA submission on the National Credit Reform Green Paper
2 Aug 2010
The ABA have provided this submission to the Corporations and Financial Services Division of the The Treasury.

The ABA has a real concern to ensure that the Green Paper is not the culmination of the government’s consultation process. Rather, it is the forerunner to a more focused empirical research project than can examine and evaluate the wider economic and market implications of any intended regulatory intervention.

However, as set out in our submission on the consultation paper on the design of the new scheme, dated 26 October 2009, the ABA also has some serious concerns with the effects the net changes will have on the wider Australian economy. Many of the changes will discourage innovation in essential areas that will be key enablers of productivity and efficiency gains, jobs and skill retention, and growth.
