In this series, Provide hosts Cameron Bagrie from Bagrie Economics as our keynote speaker. Cameron has been an economist for 20 years. For over 11 years he was the Chief Economist at ANZ. He has also worked as an economist at the National Bank, Treasury and Statistics New Zealand. A mainlander at heart, Cameron’s approach to economics is non-ideological and pragmatic.
- Paying the piper and returning the inflationary thief back in its jail cell.
- Inflation is now the 1# issue for households.
- Unfortunately, taming inflation is not growth or asset price friendly and asset prices are under pressure. There is no free lunch.
- How much collateral damage will be required? Will central banks (and governments) follow through or baulk?
- Are we witnessing a major shift in the labour market, as in, could staff shortages be more long-lasting?
- Where are workers going to come from and what should businesses be thinking about?
