The economic fallout from the Coronavirus Economics delivered on-line

Stephen Koukoulas has established an on-line keynote seminar package on the economic fallout from the Coronavirus. He would like to speak to you, your staff, your clients about what is happening and what is ahead. It is clear the economy is in trouble. The fallout is widespread. Many businesses are in trouble, workers are having their hours and wages cut or, worse, losing their jobs. The dislocation to the way the economy functioned is without precedent. Policy changes are coming thick and fast. Near zero interest rates, printing money, cash handouts, rent and mortgage payment ‘holidays’ are in the mix. Their aim is to limit the fallout so that when this crisis ends, it will be all hands on deck for the recovery and return to normal business. Read less

The Kouk's Influencers

Economics matters. Understanding where the economy is and where it is going will drive profits, investment decisions and employment opportunities. This is why the weekly run of economic news is so important. Keeping up to date with these trends, what they mean for interest rates, the Australian dollar and financial markets is the key to staying ahead of the pack. It is also where policy issues are so important. And this is not just interest rates, but what the government does on tax, spending and changes to rules and regulations. And of course, the critical thing is what to do about this news, how it might impact your business, your clients and your personal finances. Read less

People from around Australia – or the world for that matter – can log in and listen, ask questions and hear from an expert on just where the economic fallout is in these troubling times. No audience is too big or too small. Just dial in and listen to the latest issues in the economy, financial markets and the policy makers. Read less
