Lesson from Iran

If Iran can do it...

...how the Government not only enacted a brave reform — which quadrupled bread prices and increased the cost of diesel by 2000% — but also skilfully avoided public protest through a simple and well-designed compensation package for citizens.

...then just maybe wealthy Australia can also rejig its tax system to incorporate a carbon tax while ensuring the people are no worse off.
