What if we banned political contributions and instead gave political influence to companies that invest in scientific research, support the economy by paying tax, and demonstrate innovation towards a sustainable future. Time is up for old industries like coal and wood-chipping of old growth forests, so why do they still have so much power and continue being heavily subsidised by the taxpayer? How can Australia be innovative while our best scientists are being gagged and rely on crowd funding? Time to change the rules!
Innovation nation? How about rewarding research investment.
