Election 2018: Our Opportunity to Transform Tasmania

Investing in Tasmanians as a Project of State Significance

TasCOSS challenges the next political leaders of Tasmania to change the economics-only focus of how they measure their own progress—to look beyond columns of numbers and see the riches that lie in each Tasmanian household, each Tasmanian community waiting with enthusiasm to be recognised as worthy of investment.

Every Tasmanian should have the opportunity for a good life—the opportunity to do more than spend each day barely getting by. As our State experiences growing economic prosperity that adds to our already strong community bonds and our progressive attitudes there is little reason anymore for anyone to think of Tasmania as Australia’s ‘mendicant’ State.
