Show Notes
Following episode 553 (Another strange sojourn in Australia’s resource and energy policy) we delve deeper into the economic issues behind the gas price gouge with Bruce Robertson (IEEFA). We discuss policies to reduce gas prices as per international best practice. In light of further consolidation in the industry, we discuss how gas sets the baseline price for energy production in the nation. How much could energy prices fall if we got the gas price back to its’ long term price range?

Show Notes
“If you are a couple and one of you has to dedicate your entire wage for the next 25 years on the mortgage, what difference is that to slavery?” Mark Hassed takes us through his core Georgist understandings. Along the way we discuss subtle slavery, the School of Philosophy, resource ripoffs and tax avoidance. Charming but essential understandings as always.

Show Notes
How have we been conned into believing yet again another form of trickle down economics? Such supply side economics in land and housing must be critiqued. The bigger question behind this is why on earth we haven’t put 2 + 2 together previously! Karl rides the gauntlet analysing the state of the Australian housing market with some of our key indicators on show. As always, we like to think they reflect the reality of the situation. Karl also delivers some news regarding the future of the show.
