At the start of each year, Financial Standard hosts the annual Chief Economists Forum where five economists present their outlook for the year ahead. We have invited one of our previous speakers, Su-Lin Ong, Chief Economist and Head of Australian Research at RBC Capital Markets, to provide us with a mid-year update.
We ask Su-Lin whether Australia will be heavily impacted in the event of an all-out global trade war.
Su-Lin also explains whether tax cuts announced in the May Budget will provide a significant underpinning to household consumption and business investment.
All this and more in our Chief Economist Forum Mid-Year Update.
