    Thank you Mr Scali

    The 2020 year will forever be inextricably linked to Covid-19. The pandemic caused severe dislocation in societal norms and lifestyles which, when supported by various fiscal stimulus measures, resulted in an accompanying shift in consumer spending habits.

    Reflecting on the year that was 2020

    With the encouraging news on vaccine development, investors can now see clearly what the contours of a recovery will look like in 2021. This led to further gains in global stock markets, with the US S&P 500 hitting a record high. Indeed, November was one of the best months ever for global equity markets with the MSCI World ex-Australia Index up around 12.5% (in USD terms). Australia participated too, with local markets up an impressive 10%.

    Phase 3 of the Morrison Recovery Blueprint

    COVID-19 has changed the world as we know it. (Wow that’s insightful!) Some things will change for the longer term (ways of working, blind reliance on a single lowest cost supply chain, being naive about cyber security and soft power, etc) some for the next 2-5 years (attitudes to monetary policy and budget deficits, globalisation, immigration flows, etc). In Australia one of the biggest short-term adjustments is, and will continue to be, what happens on fiscal policy.
