Will our economy continue to grow?
That’s the question that our colleagues from La Trobe Financial are trying to answer in this article here
Remember the days when a bank account paid 5% per year? Remember when 8% p.a. was a prudent, responsible target for a conservative investor? If so, you may be one of the many investors who find the current condition of the global economy to be profoundly disappointing.
