Chronology of superannuation and retirement income in Australia

Do you have a massive orientation towards details and would love to learn more about superannuation in Australia? If so, you are in luck as the Parliamentary Library of Australia has just published a Chronology of superannuation and retirement income in Australia.

It is a wonderful resource for financial advisory geeks like me, but you may find the later years interesting too.

Many people grizzle that superannuation is constantly changing and that it is always bad. It is usual for any new idea to be continually tweaked as experience demonstrates the weaknesses and the strengths.  And I suggest that most of the changes to superannuation in the last decade have been beneficial to improving the long term wealth creation of Australians.

You can decide for yourself – make a cuppa and peruse the chronology… 🙂
