I'd help fix the economy by lowering the retirement age back to 60.

This will give rise to more opportunities for younger people to step up, creating more employment below (trickle down effect).

In addition to this, I'd make national superannuation means tested, so that if you chose to work beyond 60 then you do not receive the Super as well; The country saves money and jobs are created.

We should cap salaries. Who in their right mind thinks they are worth $1 million dollars plus a year with benefits. Hello!
