  1. In Western Australia the average consumer has been pulling back since the start of the mining boom, when prices across the board for necessities/utilizes increase significantly and regularly over a protracted period of time. Even as the mining boom slowed government charges & utilities still increased, that includes local council rates, water, electricity, car reg etc. These govt agencies are all on the bandwagon taking their turn and the normal citizens here are just sick of it and can’t risk spending their spare money freely due to concerns about which government agency will screw them next.

    Commercial Real Estate agents are also to blame for the loss of business activity here in WA. They are happy to put the prices up for any reason, but when the market becomes oversupplied, if not saturated, with overpriced/rubbish listings they don’t want to be competitive with each other to sell it . Holding costs are not cheap for most of these properties, there are no real government or other incentives to start or run a small businesses here to sign up as a commercial tenant, so unless the local economy improves significantly here in the short term the writing is on the wall for a significant small commercial sell off.

    Just my observations here in WA.

    • I agree with you David, the last few decades have seen massive increases in the parasitic sectors of the economy which include government at all levels, and the financial services sector while the productive sector which includes small medium and large productive enterprises excluding the financial services sector, have suffered greatly due to massive increase in regulation and capital starvation.
      People don’t realise that if the productive sector dies there’s nothing left to support the parasites, and that is precisely why we have stayed at emergency interest rates right the way through the housing bubble/boom, and now looking at zero interest rates and QE as stated by the RBA, and all we have heard that entire time is how great the economy is going. What more BS can these fools come up with to feed the sheep with. My guess is MMT which has even been mentioned here on this very site, why? Because it perpetuates the bubble economy and greatly benefits the skimmers and scammers in the financial sector and at great cost to the productive sector as can be seen throughout previous decades in all developed countries.
      The end game of all of this can be seen many times over throughout history.
      The parasites die with the host.
      Theirs nothing modern about modern monetary theory.
