World markets taking a bath - down upto 7% over past few days. Still hasnt bottomed out. Interest rates predicted to increase by at least 2% over next 2years. Finance to become more difficult to obtain. Housing market to slump. Retail to continue to struggle due to increased on-line activity combined with less disposable income. Employment figures to decrease. Super funds to struggle for at least a few years. Retirees to live on bread & dripping ( unless they are cashed up & take advantage of higher interest rates). What's our future ?

Don't worry Turnbull will save us

How can a prime minister, really expect citizens to think lowering the company tax rate, is acceptable (therefore lessening the governments income), when companies are making record profits?

Work Choices here we come! Forget the dual citizenship issue, this is the one the Labor party will bang on about right through to the next election, even though they would do the same themselves.
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

They just don't get it ,   aye Doc.

Everything is cyclical ,   "they aren't blaming Trump" cycle has arrived.

MAYBE our Stock Market is struggling because the USA has made their Investment opportu nities more attractive.

Visegrad 4 nations, central europe and east europe, have just taken a war footing stance.
Its on Hungarian news.
If you dont know what Visegrad 4 is, please look it up.

They are taking a war footing against the fishing village, known and England. Merkyls Germany, and Macrons nancy boys France.

whether its nth korea, china, america, russia, there are signs of a major world war breaking out everywhere.

its highly likely Putin is going to support the Visegrad 4 nations if war erupts.

Dont worry Doc, there might be another correction or 3 as the Fed raises interest rates this year.

You'll need to get your money out from under the mattress, and dig up all those jam jars in the garden, and put it into a term deposits with Commonwealth Bank when that happens!... "Get With The Strength!"!Wink

Of course rates will go up, that is always the reaction to out of control economic growth, and massive pay increases ... Economics 101. It does create a more settled economy allowing continued growth and prosperity (probably for another 8 years if allowed!). You need to temper the exuberance when people are making money hand over fist! ... it's the ONLY criticism I could think of for the Trump Administration - THEY HAVE CREATED TOO MUCH WEALTH FOR THE AMERICAN CITIZENS, TOO QUICKLY!Big smile ... one of the unfortunate side effects of "trickle down economics",  ... oh but that doesn't work, does it ... well not in Venezuela and other Communist regimes.Embarrassed
