THE ECONOMY
The following, a summary of the coverage around the economic outlook for
Australia for the period: August – mid September 2015.
Fusion
PowerPoint Presentation
Economic Outlook
The RBA said the weakening Aussie dollar is helping to
stimulate growth in the non-mining sector as Australia adjusts
from a decade long period in mining investment, towards
stronger growth in exports
1
For the first time in 2 years, the RBA says the Aussie dollar
isn’t overvalued suggesting further interest rate cuts are
unlikely to be needed
2
The dollar has fallen to its lowest level in six years3
Fusion
PowerPoint Presentation
Economic Outlook
Multiple sources report that
interest rates will remain low for
many years.
This is due to the shift away from
mining investment, ongoing
weak growth, the need for lower
policy rates and lower Aussie
dollar to accommodate the
rebalancing of the economy
Fusion
PowerPoint Presentation
Economic Outlook
Policy makers are becoming confident
that the post-mining boom is gaining
steam, with recent strong data including
hiring
Australia’s economy is growing at 2% YoY as it
continues to transition to non-mining sources of
growth…
Trading conditions and profitability are showing
improvement in Australian listed companies, but the
employment index sits stagnant. This adds to the
mounting evidence that the AUD depreciation and
record low interest rates are having the desired
effect by helping to offset the weakness in mining.
Fusion
PowerPoint Presentation
Economic Outlook
Australia’s spending in online retail
to the 12 months to July 2015 was
$17.4 billion. This is equivalent to
7.1% of spending at traditional
bricks & mortar retailers as
measured by the ABS in the 12
months to June 2015
(excludes cafes, restaurants &
take-away foods)
Business conditions point to
improvement in the non-mining
economy, even though the
financial markets have been jittery

PowerPoint Presentation
Economic Outlook
PwC is foreseeing personalised
interest rates as a thing of the future.
Algorithm intelligence will predict the
right interest rates based on an
individual’s circumstances.
This is on the back of ongoing
conversations about big data, what’s
called ‘fintech’ where technology is
translating to cheaper prices (for
cash), faster transactions, leaving the
end-consumer with more power than
ever before.

PowerPoint Presentation
The displacement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria, is causing
concern for the European Union who are split on the process & quotas of refugees
to accept. With an ageing population, there is speculation that labour woes on the
Continent may be relieved through the mass migration. The discontent within the
EU has the British Prime Minister questioning their very membership thereof, in a
bid to retain autonomy around decisions for refugee displacement
Globally….
 The RBA was slightly more upbeat about trading partner China, suggesting
threats to growth in the world’s second biggest economy had ‘receded
somewhat
 Global growth remains sluggish with tempered forecasts with weaker than
expected results coming out of Canada, India & Brazil
 The pace of growth in advanced economies has improved. In contrast,
Japan and the Euro zone are not growing strongly, and Canada is in
recession
 Emerging markets are driving most global growth, yet they are slowing with
falling trade volumes and softer commodity prices eroding incomes,
spending and outputs across East Asia, Latin America and South Africa

Wage growth in Australia hits record low –
in the private sector, at just 0.5% for the
second consecutive quarter. The public
sector had slightly better growth at 0.57%
for the same period.
Ordinarily, an increase in hours worked

E-Lance/ODesk have over
161,000 Australian businesses
registered with them: showing
the power of these platforms for
big business to get jobs & tasks
completed without the burden of
extra head count
1
The platform also reports that
Australian businesses plan to
continue to hire more freelancers
over permanent hires for key
roles including: admin, design,
customer service, call centre,
financial clerks
2
It’s also reported a growth in
business hiring through the site
of over 235% over 3 years
3
Traditionally, Australian workers had access to
a limited number of clients in Australia. Now
they work in a global market thanks to platforms
like Elance/Odesk and Freelancer.

PowerPoint Presentation
In 2015, the U.S.
Department of Labor
found that 65 percent of
employers anticipate an
increase in the use of
flexible staffing
arrangements to meet
their future talent needs
The slowing of the US economy
has seen many traditional
workers taking up the
opportunities afforded by
contract, freelance & gig based
work. Including…
• renting rooms on Airbnb
• making goods for Etsy
• completing tasks on Airtasker
Many worry about the safety of
ongoing work, but largely are
happier as an active participant
in the gig economy than
working for an individual boss
