The Two Jacks Episode 73 - Budget Night

1h 33m | May 17, 2024

The Two Jacks discuss the release of Jim Chalmers' third budget. Is Chalmers the government's best performer? What effect will the budget have on the economy? Will it be inflationary?

Meanwhile, in Argentina the Libertarian President Javier Milei sees some better results with inflation decreasing but still annualised at hyperinflationary rates. We examine the rest of Argentina's economic performance over the last year. Beyond inflation, the economy remains in negative growth and in the battle to control inflation, Milei runs the risk of slowing the economy further.

The US awaits its own inflation figures for the quarter but as it stands, the US economy is in better shape than most of the rest of the world.

In sport, Isaac Heeney and Marcus Bontompelli rate as the two best players in the AFL on statistical data while the Sharks roll on in the NRL.
