Liberty on the Rocks Brisbane with Matthew Sinclair @ The Alliance Hotel | Spring Hill | Queensland | Australia
We’re back for 2015 and we’re kicking off with a special guest all the way from the UK — Matthew Sinclair who is appearing courtesy of The Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance (ATA).

Matthew is a Senior Consultant at Europe Economics. Before joining Europe Economics, Matthew was Chief Executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance (TPA) in the UK, which is one of the most successful “do-tanks” in the western world and one of the inspirations behind the creating of the ATA. 
While at the TPA, Matthew organised award winning campaigns like MashBeerTax (against excessive alcohol tax) and StampOutStampDuty. He also edited the 2020 Tax Commission, which was a major joint project on tax policy with the Institute of Directors and had a significant impact on the British debate about tax reform.

Matthew is also the author of two books, “How to Cut Public Spending” and “Let Them Eat Carbon”. He has a wealth of wisdom, a sharp wit, and plenty of effective ideas for how to sell the philosophy of freedom.
