Rudd always talks about the 'future cost' of not having a scheme, but as far as I am aware he has never spelled this out in hard dollar terms. Before we commit to anything we need a comparative set of hard data - i)cost of doing nothing vs ii) cost of trading scheme initially vs iii) cost of scheme in 10 years time. Only at that point can an objective ,as opposed to an emotive, decision be made.
