MB Fund Podcast: Is the beast back? The future of Australian property

This week’s LIVE webinar (12:30pm AEST, Thursday 30th May) – we dive into a big update on Australian’s favourite asset rollercoaster.

With the pro-property party firmly back in power – the question remains, does this mean ‘risk on’ for the property pundits or is there still enough pessimistic proof of potential paroxysm?

So join MB Fund’s Head of Investments Damien Klassen, Chief Strategist David Llewellyn Smith, Chief Economist Leith Van Onselen, Special Guest Catherine Cashmore and Tim Fuller as we look at the factors supporting both sides of Australia’s property market.

    The bottom line is this: if the pro-property party can’t get the beast fired up again then it’s time to panic.

    There appear to be two camps out there:
    – those who believe that the Govt can control the destiny of the property bubble (it’s simply a question of will)
    – those who believe they can influence things for a while but do not have ultimate control over the destiny of the bubble

    To be sure, if you believe the former then by default you believe the laws of economics can be repealed.

    Definitely boom times ahead as this normal cycle moves towards that always attained point.

  3. The election has changed nothing. Situation normal. Property cannot deliver returns forever in a slowing economy. Prices are down cause they deserve to be.

  4. Jumping jack flash

    So long as the debt can grow forever, so too can property. In fact the two are inexorably linked together. It is the fundamental basis of the infinite debt machine that is at the heart of our new economy.

    Not just ours but most of the world’s as well. We mostly copied what everyone else was doing.

    There may be a point where the next amount of debt required to grow the economy is too large for the people to hold onto, but I don’t think we’re there yet.

    We’re probably 4 interest rate cuts away – as long as the banks pass them on, of course.

    As for Scomo having any kind of control over anything, well the only thing he can really do anymore is cut taxes, and cut taxes, and cut them some more, which will have the effect, at least at face value, of giving people more money to spend.

    But the other side to that equation is of course no government services and everything is privatised so the government doesn’t need to spend what it doesn’t collect in taxes. Privatised services will absorb whatever tax savings are provided, plus a bit extra as those essential services are gouged to assist debt creation and debt service.

  5. “Perth’s different”. Yep only Perth is the same as the rest of the world. The rest of Australia is different.
