THE DISTILLERY: Medcraft's musings

Scribes chew over some big economic issues, with one looking at the ASIC boss' suggestions for regulatory reform and another pointing to the QE cause of market volatility.

We’ve got the typical weekend musings about the state of the Australian economy from our nation’s business scribes, but there are a few nuggets of gold in this Monday’s edition of The Distillery. However, there’s some news on the state of global financial regulation led by Australia’s very own Greg Medcraft, a succinct explanation of why the markets are volatile at the moment and some home truths about Australian manufacturing.

Not a bad way to start the week, that’s for sure.
