Carbon tax worst economic reform, says outgoing Future Fund chief

Outgoing Future Fund chairman David Murray has given a searing exit interview, blasting the carbon tax as the worst economic reform he has ever seen.
''If you want me to tell you my view, it is the worst piece of economic reform that I've ever seen in my lifetime,'' Mr Murray told ABC radio this morning.
Mr Murray, who is due to finish at the Future Fund next month, said that the ''notion'' of the carbon tax was not the issue, it was the ''consequences''.
He said it would raise costs within Australia and reduce Australia's competitiveness in energy exports. ''[It] therefore renders us less competitive in the future,'' he said.
