Lacking the confidence to lead

A lack of political direction and inertia across much of the economy are an unhealthy combination.

I talk to a lot of business people in my day job, particularly during reporting season, which provides a unique opportunity to catch up with the chief executives of some of our biggest public companies.

It’s also a chance to get a measure of business confidence, and this year I asked every CEO I spoke to for their take on consumer sentiment.

I think Tony is correct, there is a lot more concern than the 'analyst" tea leaves are showing. The Federal government is consumed by same sex marriage and 18C which may be a concern to the elitists in Canberra but are irrelevant to most Australians. They are showing no economic leadership at all Turnbull is the problem
