It’s the third annual Devils and Details Christmas special.

We’ve reassembled the same festive panel to look back at what has been an extraordinary year for the global economy and financial markets.

Our guests are ANZ senior economist Joanne Masters, JP Morgan executive director for macro sales Laura Fitzsimmons, and James Whelan of VFS Group. We look back at the action over the past 12 months and talk about what’s likely to come in 2019, including the all-important outlook for the US Federal Reserve on its rates path, the outlook for the Australian dollar, the trajectory of the Sydney and Melbourne property downturn and the RBA rates outlook.

There’s also a run through some of the best forecasts of the year and we get into whether Brexit matters — a matter on which David Scutt has some strong views.

You can find the show on iTunes or by searching “Devils and Details” wherever you get your podcasts (including on Spotify) — or you can tune in below.

Enjoy the show — and here’s wishing a merry Christmas from the Devils and Details team to all of our listeners.
