Low wages growth & the drop in household saving – 612 ABC Brisbane panel discussion

Low wages growth and the drop in household saving recorded in the June quarter National Accounts were considered in a panel discussion I participated in on Emma Griffiths’s 612 ABC Brisbane Focus program yesterday morning, which you can listen to here:

Focus: Are you spending your savings to fund your life?

Other panel members included Griffith University academic Di Johnson, Queensland Council of Unions General Secretary Ros McLennan, CCIQ spokesperson Dan Petrie, and former trade minister Craig Emerson, who joined us by phone. Many thanks to host Emma Griffiths and her producers Ria and Josh for having me on the show yesterday.
