1. Here's the report by Orima on the trials, however it's not easy to interpret these results: https://www.dss.gov.au/sites/default/...
2. So I recommend you check out the explanation of the results by Dr Janet Hunt, from ANU: https://caepr.cass.anu.edu.au/sites/d...
3. Here's the evidence for the claim that the Cashless Debit Card is:
• Ineffective - see Auditor General report which says there was no evidence that it reduces social harm (Australian National Audit Office (ANAO), 2018)
• Expensive - it costs over $10-12,000 per person (see ANAO, 2018 and Senate Committee hearings)
• Harmful – 32 per cent of respondents to the government evaluation said it made their lives worse (Orima, 2017)
• Unsupported - the government evaluation acknowledged that the CDCT did not have universal support from the local community (Orima, 2017)
• Discriminatory - breaches human rights of privacy and social security (Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights, Community Affairs Legislation Committee, 2018)
• Paternalistic - it removes people's agency to manage their affairs (Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights, Community Affairs Legislation Committee, 2018).
