It seems that, after the introduction of both fiscal packages in 2008 and 2009, inequalities in Australia were lowered more than what could have been expected from the classic drivers of inequality. Yet this decrease is not significant and so hard to analyse. Figure 8 : Australian net income Gini prediction error In order to have statistically significant results, a more precise model would be needed.
