Block Mathias Corman's OECD post
Do not consider Mathias Cormann for OECD leadership. His credentials and actions are actually counterproductive to what OECD is trying to accomplish.
"The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation that works to build better policies for better lives. Our goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all." Much of Mathias Cormann,s political career has been directed at exactly the opposite!
Why is this important?
_'Trying to invert reality'_ Mathias Cormann's climate credentials are sadly lacking and has put big business before climate in almost every instance. Actually to the point of discounting all scientific evidence.
Mathias Cormann talks up 'green recovery' in OECD pitch, pitching ‘zero net emissions as soon as possible’, which contradicts his record while in Australian government.
Your own report "Australia needs to intensify efforts to meet its 2030 emissions goal" goes to the heart of the problem. Mathias has a record of deep climate skepticism having voted in favour of climate change mitigation in the Australian parliament. https://www.oecd.org/australia/australia-needs-to-intensify-efforts-to-meet-its-2030-emissions-goal.htm
His economic policies as Minister of Finance has only enhanced the richest of Australians while penalizing the majority. His policies have significantly increased the inequity divide. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-07-12/household-income-and-wealth-abs-data-shows-rich-are-richer/11302696
Additionally, Mathias Cormann voted against creating a federal Anti-Corruption Commission to hold politicians to account.
, Mathias is perfect for the OECD if it would like to swing towards:
A supply-side agenda that will intensity class divisions, exacerbate secular stagnation and privilege corporate greed.
Become more climate change skeptical and slow mitigation policy whenever and wherever possible.
Harden its stance against refugee.
