Join us to hear Dr Caton’s view of the major economies - particularly the US and China - as well as the Australian economy.
Dr Caton will discuss likely paths for interest rates, the exchange rate and share markets, and possibly even house prices. He’ll also look at the effects of the 2017/18 Federal Budget released on 9 May.
