Raise politicians' pay to attract more talented people

Comments on Peter Costello “Exit Turnbull from a political stage littered with underachievers”, 14/04/2010, http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/politics/exit-turnbull-from-a-political-stage-littered-with-underachievers-20100413-s7dz.html?posted=sucessful

Costello has a good point on politicians pay and superannuation.

The last change to their superannuation was much too excessive, driven by political popularism when Howard felt threatened by Latham's.

However, an increase in the pay to politicians may attract more business minded people who may contribute to a better economy and make more common sense as compared to purely political driven people with little business experience.
