Expert Panel Video Conference on the Economic Road Ahead EOFY Playbook 2021/22
Australia’s economy will limp along after recovering from COVID 19, failing to regain the growth it had either in the years leading up to the crisis or the much higher growth in the decades before.
That’s the view of many economists across the country.
Most expect year-average economic growth (the measure reported in the budget) to slide from 4 per cent this financial year to just 2.2 per cent by 2024-25, well below the average of 2.6 per cent assumed in the Federal Government’ intergenerational report.
A number of economists are forecasting much weaker business investment than does the Federal budget and lower household spending, but higher wage growth and lower unemployment. They expect a flat share market, and slower growth in house prices.
