Here's the election-time economics podcast you're looking for

With Michael McCarthy of CMC Markets, left, and Business Insider’s David Scutt for this week’s show.

Democracy rocks. Australia votes on Saturday and Malcolm Turnbull leads the Coalition into the vote having framed his entire pitch around economic growth.

In this week’s Devils and Details podcast, we’re joined by Michael McCarthy, chief markets strategist at CMC Markets, to discuss the economic backdrop to the decision facing voters at the polls. We cover:

  • Rational voters (or not, as the case may be)
  • Policy paralysis
  • Politicians’ promises
  • The populism factor and the two-speed economy

And there’s a whole bunch of other topics in there too.

We’ve had an encouraging response from people on the show, which you can find on iTunes, where you can rate us and leave a review. You can also listen in below. Enjoy!
