    Recession, banks, and change of plans

    Hi Friends This is by far the best forum I have visited for investment tips, guidance, and knowledge. I think we have really prop people here. I am new to the group and relatively new to investing. Gathering information and have been doing small things for a few years. Without wasting more time...

    25 years without a recession: Why is the Australian economy so resilient?

    Australia's economy has been humming along for 25 years with no recession. Kudos to Down Under! It will never go down and never go under. "Down Under" is obviously a misnomer. On a more serious note, why is the Australian economy so resilient? - Is it...

    Banking on an Australian recession

    Joe, i hope I am not duplicating an existing thread. I am gettiung convinced Australia will soon technically be in a recession. How do you bank on this? A recession does NOT mean the asx will go down, so how do you profit from such an event if it occurs; what should I buy/sell? Interested...

    The recession has started?

    Anecdotally, I'm starting to see rather a lot of evidence that suggests a recession or at least a serious slowdown is here and now. Examples: At work I deal with lots of contractors, for which we are generally a small customer. All of a sudden none of them are busy. All these are doing...

    What would it take for an Australian recession?

    I'm new to talk about the economy etc, so go easy on me. But a quick question: Why is it that people are saying that Australia looks like it could be going towards a recession? How would an Australian recession affect the cost of houses in Australia? Is it because of the following...

    Has the recession begun?

    ASF has alot of armchair (and probably pro) economists so I thought running a poll on that topic seldom discussed within in polite circles might be enlightening ! I think it has begun, and will site a few sources whom agree ......
