Data for week commencing 14 September

I started the week thinking the big issue was a Fed decision on Friday morning but it ended up being a fizzer, compared to the Libs' decision to invest their last year of government with Malcolm Turnbull.

Regular readers know I have plenty of time for Tony Abbott and Joe Hockey, despite the fact they played the wrong economic card with their first Budget. They followed the political script of going hard in the first year, hoping over the next two years that forgiveness or bad memory would help them but I was warning at the time that the economy was slowing so it was a dangerous game they played.
