This is the “MW30”, a bunch of numbers to track key changes in Australian politics and economy.
All numbers in the table are as at March 15, 2019. By June 15, when we update, things will have changed a lot: House of Reps and Senate post-election for a start. Then there is the women in politics numbers and the bond rate. The one to watch, will a drop interest rates (that is, ten year government bonds) point to a recession under a Morrison government?
This year’s Federal Budget, as predicted, was a national marketing exercise, not much more.
