Who actually is the most powerful woman in the world (Hint: it’s not Beyonce), and what’s she going to do with that power?

The CEOs of the big four banks fronted the House of Reps Economics Committee in Canberra last week, giving us a privileged insight into their outlook for the economy. They also took time to throw some shade at state governments for letting the housing boom get out of control. This is what the view from the C-suites of money town looks like, while this tpyo’s for you Iain. ;) And here’s a link to the Committee’s terms of reference, which nobody is going to click on, except nerds like Thomas.   If you've got a question for Thomas... or Adam... then go ahead and send them to cve@equitymates.com Any views expressed by the podcast host or any guest are their own and do not represent the views of Equity Mates Media or any other employer or associated organisation.

Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan are talking up a new commodity supercycle. It is true that commodity prices are through the roof, but are they going to stay there? Are we on the cusp of another 12-year boom, or is it just going to fade away the way the last mining boom did, along with ‘The Chinese Century’?

A massive container ship, The Ever Given, got sideways last week and plugged up the Suez Canal, one of the most important shipping routes in the world.

The massive Jobkeeper program winds up at the end of March, just as the US is mailing out cheques for $1400 to the whole country. Is the end of Jobkeeper the end of the Aussie economy?

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are selling for millions of dollars, but what are they? Thomas says they’re what happens when you combine the financial illiteracy of crypto-bois with the self-indulgent pretentiousness of the arts market, but he would say that wouldn’t he?

GDP boomed last week, just as Thomas predicted, but markets didn’t do nothing. Why? Why is WA all about cutting payroll tax, and why don’t economists dance when inflation is zero?

Adam was shocked last week to see that bond yields had caused share markets to tank. Bond yields? He doesn’t know what either of those words even mean.

There’s an epic battle going on right now in economics between the proponents of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), and the adherents of vintage, small-batch monetary theory.

This week the boys expand their focus a bit to look at the property market, and the five things that set property apart from shares.

Hey guys. Loving the show. Keep up the work. My wife has a great question that I can’t answer. Where does money come from? As in, not the mint, but where does new money come from. How does inflation make money, and therefore, where does it come from?
