Budget 2012 Live Chat

JOIN our live chat as details of the 2012-13 Federal Budget are announced and the economic and political battle-lines are drawn for the next year.

Is Wayne Swan's fifth budget a triumphant return to the black or a headlong rush into economic decay? Is the surplus a needed compliment to the RBA's monetary policy or a direct threat to it?

The live chat will begin at 6pm and will be moderated.
