    Some charts from Michele Bullock's (RBA Assistant Governor) speech yesterday. Nothing particularly juicy in her speech nor new.

    Household savings, Capital Equity Ratios major banks and housing prices.

    I don't usually care what others are doing. ;)

    People are saving more money than before.

    Banks are in a stronger position to deal with bad loans than in 2008.

    With the exception of Perth and Darwin, house prices are strong.

    That means bad for the general economy.

    Banks don't have to deal with excessive bad loans. ;) So "stronger" or "weaker" become irrelevant. Banks just are.

    I suspect it's why the RBA insists that governments issue bonds rather than it just depositing funds directly into the Commonwealth's and State's Treasury coffers. The current financial system could well collapse if bonds didn't exist.

    As long as these numbers are up and not down wouldn't we consider them pointless? Since the uptick can simply be attributed to the government handouts and mortgage freeze?

    IMO as long as the RBA and government support is there, then any potential crisis can be (a) delayed, (b) averted or (c) overcome. Take your pick of which one. Short term I'm in "b", longer term leaning toward "c".

    Edit to add: remember "government handouts" are a tool of the modern monetary system, as such, they're going to be with us for a long time.
