PODCAST: Missiles, the Amazon effect, Trump, tax, CAPEX, and Australia's latest cricketing collapse

The Devils and Details Podcast is back with Business Insider’s Paul Colgan and David Scutt joined by James Whelan, investment manager at VFS Group, a regular on the program.

In this week’s episode the conversation starts and ends with a test.

It kicks off with North Korea’s latest missile launch, and the subsequent market reaction, before concluding with our assessment on Australia’s loss to Bangladesh in this week’s cricket test.

We also discuss the promising outlook for business investment, the reason why Australian households are feeling glum, the prospect of tax reforms in the United States — and what it could do to markets — along with another deep-dive into Amazon’s arrival to Australia, something that will impact all Australians in one way or another.

Whelan also declares that the Sydney Swans are a shoe-in to win the AFL flag in 2017. (Apologies in advance to all our AFL listeners of opposing teams).
