On super reform, the government’s picking a bad and needless fight

The government will soon introduce reforms that could reshape Australia’s $2 trillion superannuation sector, and have sparked considerable debate within the industry. Financial Services Minister Kelly O’Dwyer has long called for an overhaul of the sector, saying the reforms are about “extending choice” to consumers and “modernising” how the industry operates. But who the government’s proposals are designed to benefit – and who will lose out from the changes – is very much an open question.
