9 reasons a recession shouldn’t have you spooked

Talk of a recession in Australia is intensifying, but are things really as bad as they seem? 

 

Not long ago, we discussed how UNSW Business School professor Richard Holden said figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics show "we've now entered an effective recession in Australia."

But what if the Australian economy is healthier than we realise? This piece from AMP Capital's Shane Oliver explores nine reasons why a recession isn't necessarily an inevitability. 

If you read this, you will learn:

    • headwinds facing the Australian economy
    • where there are signs of stability
    • what to expect in the Australian sharemarket
