The Sales Secret that Spells Trouble for Australian Banks in 2013

15 December 2012 by Callum Newman

You might remember the Australian government ‘lent’ its AAA rating to the Australian banks during the global financial crisis so they weren’t shut out of foreign money markets. So any threat to the Australian government’s AAA ranking is a direct threat to the Australian banking system.

APRA Spins Another Yarn On Australian Banks

09 November 2012 by Kris Sayce

With all the evidence showing the overseas banking system is on the edge of collapse, Australia’s banking regulator (APRA) insists on spinning the yarn that Australian banks are just fine, so don’t worry about anything. Today’s Australian reports: ‘Australia’s biggest banks would survive a global economic disaster that included a disorderly resolution in Europe, a [...]

The Bloody Oaths and Balance Sheet Imbalances of Australian Banks

The Bloody Oaths and Balance Sheet Imbalances of Australian Banks

21 August 2012 by Nick Hubble

You’ll soon think back longingly to the times when Australian banks were stupidly profitable: ‘Remember the good old days when The Age reported, ‘the combined yearly profits of the big four banks now total more than $1000 for every person in Australia.’ Back then, people thought profits were bad.

Trusted With Trillions, Central Bankers Can’t Even Work Out a Two Dollar Puzzle

10 August 2012 by Kris Sayce

Finally, mainstream bankers and economists admit the market has beaten them. No, we’re not talking about multitrillion dollar banking bailouts.

Australian Banks Are Moving Into Bust Phase

06 July 2012 by Kris Sayce

Credit and money lending have gained bad reputations recently. Yet, without them the economy would grind to a halt. Innovation would cease, and living standards would drop. As long as it’s well managed, credit is a virtue. But as we all know, sometimes it isn’t well managed. And that’s where things don’t always go to [...]

While travelling through Turkey recently, I read The Middle Sea: A History of the Mediterranean. I find that it always helps the travelling vibe to read something about the region you’re in.
