The Consequences of the Virus Government restrictions to control COVID-19 have hit the global economy like a sledgehammer.
A discussion on Australia's economic recovery with Professor Warren Hogan
Jarden Board Member and Triple T Consulting Managing Director Sean Keane recently hosted a discussion with Professor Warren Hogan.
Professor Hogan shared views and research on the emerging recovery in the Australian economy, and his expectation of a ‘W’-shaped economic path, rather than a ‘V’ in the near term. He discussed the main economic and financial risks to recovery and some of the policy challenges that Australian governments will need to address, in order to reinvigorate a strong economic expansion. Professor Hogan also discussed parallels between the Australian and NZ economies and shared views about real unemployment, the morality of negative interest rates and the likely consequences of inflation on a debt-encumbered economy.
