I think the key is ensuring that the growth is sustainable growth (not boom time or quick return).
Globally governments fail to plan beyond very short calendar year periods (usually election based) but for long term sustainable growth projects you put a little in over a long time and only increase/decrease the spend and therefore the taxation as required.
Nobody will argue if the services or infrastructure match the spend or tax take, the issue is how current taxes are spent but really it should be how future taxes will be spent.
If someone could tell you what the plan is for say the road network or health service in 2020 and the progress was reported on every year . . .
