The article comments on the need for the federal government's audit of the research and development tax concessions to focus on dysfunctional research and development policies in Australia. The audit has revealed issues with tax deduction for research and development which lead to a period of increased spending. The author recommends that the government offer a high rate for companies who concentrate on research and no special concession to companies that spend at a low level.
