Earlier in March 2015, the Federal Government released the 2015 Intergenerational Report—Australia in 2055. The report predicts that average wage growth will fall to 1.5 percent annually over the next 30 years (compared to 1.7 percent annually over the last 40 years) and that gross national income (per person) will slow to a growth rate of 1.4 percent in the next 40 years (compared to 1.7 percent over the last 40 years). The report also draws attention to the aging of the Australian working population (and predicts a 100 percent increase in the number of Australians over 65 years old by 2055). It seems likely that the Government will use the report to argue for reforms to Australia's superannuation and pension programs in the 2015 Federal Budget (to be released in May).
