NSW Drive – Rising inflation and global trade dynamics

NSW Drive – Rising inflation and global trade dynamics

In last week’s interview with Jess McGuire on ABC’s NSW Drive, I discussed the current developments affecting our economic outlook. We delved into the recent rise in the inflation rate from 3.6 per cent to 4 per cent, prompting central banks to reconsider the timing of interest rate cuts, now likely delayed until late this year or early next. Additionally, I highlighted how iron ore exports to China are bolstering both our economies, reflecting on the broader implications for Australian trade partnerships. We also examined the downturn in discretionary spending, which is impacting retail and media sectors, with a notable decrease in share prices.
