Sprigs of hope in the Gillard gloom

Despite disillusionment with the current government, the likelihood of a carbon tax abolition, new infrastructure spending and better economic confidence gives business great hope after September.

Many smaller businesses around Australia are thinking of throwing in the towel. If it’s not too late, hang on because I can see some clear sprigs of upturn emerging through the gloom.

As you all know I am not a screaming bull but big share market rises are normally followed by a rise in the real economy, even when all seems hopeless.
