Trouble in store for Australian retailers

Consumer confidence is recovering from the post-budget backlash but the growing trend of short-term shopping centre leases signals underlying weakness in the retail sector.

What I have learned in the last few days will send shivers down the spines of those who have invested in large shopping centres. However I must emphasise that I do not believe we are on the edge of a catastrophic retail event, but rather a warning sign that we have allowed the economy to move closer to a significant downturn than most analysts believe.
