PODCAST: The budget, banks, and blow-ups

(L-R): Michael Judge of OFX, Business Insider’s Paul Colgan, and James Whelan of VFS Group.

What a week.

The federal budget delivered on Tuesday represented a dramatic overhaul of Coalition economic policy, and set the stage for a high-stakes confrontation with Australia’s major banks, who are furious at the imposition of a new tax that will collect more than a billion dollars a year from them.

To discuss the budget and its economic assumptions as well as the bank blow-up we’re joined on the Devils and Details podcast by Michael Judge, head of corporate dealing at FX platform OFX, and James Whelan, investment manager at VFS Group.
