RBA September 2019 – Is the Australian Economy REALLY that bad?

Businesses cut back as weak economy puts pressure on profits. Australia managed to survive the global recession – but all that good work has been wasted. The worst surplus ever: ‘Obsession’ rocking the Australian economy.

These are just some of the headlines when you search for “Australian Economy” on Google. Is it really that bad? Are we really going towards a rocky time? What does the fresh data telling us?

That’s what Ben will be explaining in today’s RBA commentary folks! Apart from that, he’ll also be covering a variety of topics such as:

  • What’s happening with the US-China Trade Deal and what’s President Trump is hoping for?
  • Are there anything else happening around the world that has a direct impact on Australia?
  • Is the Australian Economy as bad as the media is saying it is?
  • What’s the main focus for the RBA at the moment?
  • How’s business confidence now that more post-election data is available?
  • And more!

Now, let’s dive into RBA September 2019 Cash Rate Announcement!

RBA August 2019 – Should you be FIXING your Rate?

This is NOT the time to fix your mortgage.

It’s odd, isn’t it? The cash rate is on an all-time low and the lenders have been cutting their rates, both fixed and variable. So why is it not the time to go for a fixed loan?

We know it’s a big statement and that’s why Ben will be explaining all that in today’s RBA commentary folks! Apart from that, he’ll also be covering a variety of topics such as:

  • What’s happening with the US-China Trade Deal and how did the US Chair of Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell reacted to it?
  • What’s the main focus for the RBA at the moment?
  • How will the slight improvement in inflation impact the economy?
  • Is retail spending moving in the right trend?
  • Have we finally bottomed out in the Property Market or are there a couple more months to go?

Now, let’s dive into RBA August 2019 Cash Rate Announcement!

RBA July 2019 – Twice in a row??

75% of economists predicted another rate drop… Are they right?… or wrong?

As mentioned previously, unemployment and wage growth is a priority for the RBA and despite last month’s cut, there wasn’t a lot of movement found in these two economic indicators.

So the RBA Board has decided to drop another 25 basis points bringing the cash rate to 1%. Find out what other factors have triggered this decision including if the US-China Trade Deals has anything to do with it!

AND if you’d like more data on Ben’s commentary today, here are a few resources:

Episode 235 | Money Hacks from the Money Queen – Chat with Effie Zahos

Folks, we’re up and about today!

Because not only is our dear friend Effie Zahos… aka the Money Queen… finally back on the Couch with us (It was WAAAY back in Episode 105 that we last checked in with her)… there’s also been a bit of a rate movement this week… the first in nearly 3 years! (Well, that, and our footy teams’ played each other on the weekend and Bryce came out on top of ol’ mate Kingsley!!)

What this rate movement means is a little more money in the bank for mortgage owners, which, especially when coupled with today’s episode that’s jam-packed full of Money Hacks, means that there’s a bit of extra money on the table that you can put to work for you. Of course, it does also mean that the Australian economy isn’t performing as well as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) had hoped, and ultimately there’s a LOT to be said about this decision. So, Ben has created a video on the June RBA Cash Rate Drop, which goes into detail about all this. You can check out the new rate announcement here.

But back to the wonderful, wise and VERY money-savvy guest who’s joined us today…!

It’ll probably come as no surprise to you who the Money Queen is… but we’ll take no chances… and remove all doubt as to who Effie Zahos is!!! She is indeed the “Money” Queen… as in Money Magazine‘s finance editor for over 22 years! Well, we should say WAS the editor cos up until very recently, Effie decided to hang up her Money boots and walk in her own shoes instead… and she’s JUST released a brand new book, A Real Girl’s Guide to Money: From Converse to Louboutins!!
And today she’s sharing her best Money Hacks and financial tips so that you can stay on track of your hard-earned cash and make sure you have enough in retirement!

And, yep, if you hadn’t put two and two together yet… Effie’s personally worked alongside the likes of the Original Money Guru, Paul Clitheroe — our 200th episode’s very special guest — for a couple of, ahh, DECADES.

So you’re in VERY safe hands!
