Folks, we’ve got a very FULL week ahead of us!

RBA March 2019 Announcement – What’s causing the deterioration in our economy?

It’s the first Tuesday of the month folks… which means the RBA Board has met and announced the official cash rate for March 2019!

As widely anticipated, the Cash Rate has remained on 1.5%.

Now if you tuned in to last week’s episode with Dr Andrew Wilson, you would notice that he forecasted the next rate cut to be as early as April!
Bill Evans, Chief Economist at Westpac on the other hand, is anticipating not one, but two rate cuts on the second half of the year.

What has triggered this and what do we think is going to happen? Why is it that most economists are forecasting a rate cut instead of a rate hike? Ben explains all this and more in this episode.

Episode 221 | Dr. Andrew Wilson – The Scare Campaign We Had To Have

“Housing markets shouldn’t be leading monetary policy; they’re a response to monetary policy.” — Dr Andrew Wilson

 

Folks, our guest for this week is Dr Andrew Wilson, Chief Economist at My Housing Market, who is sounding more bullish than bearish when it comes to Australia’s property market and overall economic outlook!

To give you an idea, Dr Wilson provides comprehensive property market insights and is a highly-regarded and prolific housing market speaker, as well as a keynote presenter for the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) and an appointed housing market expert and adviser to the Federal Government funded Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network. He’s also a repeat offender on the Couch, gracing us with his invaluable insights all the way back in Episode 87!

Oh, and of course, he also holds a PhD and Masters by Research in Housing Market Economics. Just sayin’.

So if the uncertainty of the property market is sending your confidence out of whack, let’s go up 30ft around the country and see what’s coming up over that hill. You’ll get a sneak peek at some of the regions that might be worth your attention this year, as well as when the interest rate will potentially drop this year, according to the Chief Economist himself.

Spoiler… the Scare Campaign just might lose its edge!
