Sharing the burden – How the older generation should suffer its share of the cuts received a great deal of attention and continues to provoke debate in print, in broadcast and online. Proposing to save £16bn per year by cutting back on the many non-means-tested benefits that the elderly receive and by reforming pensions, the paper provides important solutions to help the government to bring about substantial reductions in taxes to the benefit of all people. This is part of an ongoing project of wider reforms to bring about a smaller state, a more effective welfare system, higher economic growth and higher disposable incomes.
