Australia’s trend growth rate has usually been regarded as being around three per cent. However, the Treasury has confirmed that the December 2015 Budget update will be based on expectations of a potential growth rate of 2.75 per cent. Meanwhile, Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens forecasts that investment yields and global interest rates will remain low for some time. He has also warned Baby Boomers that they cannot expect to keep enjoying growth in dividends unless the companies they invest in are prepared to embrace more risk.
