    The Bill Shorten leftist Government will give Australia its first recession in 27years.Its high taxing redistribution policy will sent the flight of capital overseas .Reducing taxes and regulations is the only way forward to generate GDP growth .I am very bearish on the Aussie dollar for all reasons mentioned in presentation.Socialism has succeeded nowhere !

  2. Martin North is one of the few property commentators that I have a great deal of respect for, his logical intelligent and informed deliveries are a breath of fresh air, amongst all the nonsense peddled by the MSM and the RBA etc, why can’t we have blokes like him at the helm and not the bubble headed Keynesians we have.

    • Thanks for the edit guys, Martin North is way more than just a property market commentator, and if you watch some of his videos on Utube where he gives commentary on many things in finance and is very critical of the RBA, APRA, the government in general, the property market is just a big issue ATM and its only just getting started.
      He has been predicting this for years, as has Roger Montgomery.

  3. All so true still lots of greed out there bring on more fear unfortunately it’s the little guys that mainly get burnt as always great listening


    A great presentation Alex. As in life, you can’t understand where you are, unless you look over your shoulder to see where you have been. Moving forward from here, I have a weird feeling that this presentation will form the bare bones of a 3 part documentary in 2021 on “The Australian economy – how did we get to this?”

  5. Well, Mr Buffett has said that there will be “A major catastrophe that will dwarf hurricanes Katrina and Michael will occur — perhaps tomorrow, perhaps many decades from now”, so perhaps that’s it ?


    But it’s all very well and good to say “maybe tomorrow, maybe decades from now” because I could say the same thing about anything for any forecasted event and it still not come true. I still remember during the 80s that we lived with the constant spectre of a potential nuclear war between the US and Russia; that (thankfully) didn’t eventuate.

  6. It’s a case of Deja Vu …The Aussie dollar will drop cause the economy is cactus and Asian buyers will once again be allowed to buy into the Aussie property market . At the end of the day there are 1.2 billion Asians wanting to buy into a country with only 25 million occupants.
