The Australian economy…..not too gloomy

Key points > Australian economic growth came in at a stronger than expected 0.9% in the March quarter, but remains subpar on an annual basis at 2.3% and demand remains very weak. > More help is likely required via a lower $A (expect to see $US0.70 by year end) and maybe another rate cut. > Record low borrowing rates, rising wealth levels, lower petrol prices than last year, relatively high household saving, the lower $A, rising export volumes and better management of the last boom are reasons not to get too gloomy on Australia.
