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.
