Recent Charts on Globalisation, Asia and Australia

Asia-focused private equity with surplus funds looking for investment opportunities. 

Deficits on the increase in the developing world

Australia's relatively excellent economic performance ...

A much more informative graph for this would involve making the pre-crisis high the starting point for all countries. Such a graph would show that most countries have not returned to their pre-crisis levels of GDP per capita or otherwise.

Global investment from a Speech by Philip Lowe, Deputy Governor, Investment and the Australian Economy. 

Australian investment buoyed by mining but now on the way down.

Investment in other sectors flat or in decline ... 

Hope is that non-mining investment can pick up to underpin GDP growth.

This from Glenn Stevens' speech a little while ago showing trend and actual performance of household assets.

And the same for income and consumption. Clearly consumption is well below its trend from the mid 1990s to mid 2000s and is unlikely to recover soon.
