Transparent budgets – a way out of corruption?

So much budget talk on at the moment.. And it isn’t even until next Tuesday. There is a lot of confusing numbers and figures and it doesn’t make sense to a lot of people. But what if there was another way?

African countries, such as Ghana, Burkina Faso and Cameroon do it differently with “citizen budgets”.

“Citizen budgets” are a way to make government budgets more transparent and to stamp out corruption.

But, what actually is a “citizen budget”? What are the benefits of a more transparent budget? And, how does this relate to Australia?

To broaden our perspective we were joined by Doctoral Candidate Usman Chohan from Policy Reform and Economics, UNSW Australia.
