It can be thought of as a supplement to the three requested submissions provided to the Financial Systems Inquiry (FSI) in 2014. The present Treasury work is predicated upon the recommendations of the FSI Report.

With demographic and economic changes on the horizon, an understanding of the production and consumption behavior of all Australians, but mature age Australians in particular, is indispensible. This project seeks to enhance our understanding of the economic lifecycle by developing National Transfer Accounts (NTA) for Australia. The formal definition of the NTA is "a system of macroeconomic accounts that measures current economic flows by age in a manner consistent with the United Nations System of National Accounts. NTA measures age- specific labour income, asset income, consumption, transfers and saving, accounting for flows within households, between households, through the public sector and with the rest of the world" (UN,2013).


Following CEPAR's initial submission to the Financial Systems Inquiry, members of the Inquiry expressed the view that behavioural economics/finance had been underdone in the submission. CEPAR has put together a supplementary submission addressing this area.



A number of CEPAR staff and affiliates contributed to this submission, including Rafal Chomik, Michael Sherris, Hazel Bateman, John Piggott, Ralph Stevens, and Diane Hosking, and the Chairman of the CEPAR Advisory Board, Marc de Cure.
