Fears over the financial impact of the carbon tax are likely to "weigh in on consumer confidence," according to one mortgage broker

    The carbon tax money doesn't 'disappear'.

    Researchers and producers of hi tech products which to reduce carbon emissions get the money.

    They will prosper in their new jobs and they'll need loans like everyone else.

    none of the deals I have done for consumers in the past 2 months have seen any "anxious concerns" maybe regional Australia are a littel different or this is a beat up .

    Incognito....REALLY? Read the fine print mate. Most of the $$$ goes to the UN to support so-called emerging economies. Those that compete againsout own.

    Steveo where do you get that (and your news?). "most of the carbon $$$ going to the UN to support emerging economies??"

    I've never heard of that.

    I will look closely for evidence and please in all honesty do the same

    Incognito- when someone can explain to me how taxing companies to get cleaner (which rips into their R& D budgets) vs just making pollution illegal and therefore forcing innovation (without reducing the R& D budget) is a good idea...then I will support a carbon tax
