    Default Which companies will benefit from a Labour only Govt, & why?

    The people have spoken through the ballot.

    Who will make money, and who may make less? .

    Can't think of any at this stage after all, looks like we are going to get a New Public holiday, 5 more days of sick leave for people to abuse, all more cost to business.

    No companies will benefit and more small businesses will fail over the next few years. PS-The people spoke to keep the Greens out of a power position I believe.

    i do believe retail will be fine for the next 12 months - if over 50% of people are happy with the encumbent that represents a large cross section of society who remain confident/happy.

    IMO retail will struggle over the next few years as costs rise significantly (min wage to $20 in 2021 and higher each year, new public holiday, double sick leave entitlement, fair pay agreements etc.), consumer wallets become tighter for anything other than housing, and the retail purchasing methodology changes significantly post COVID.

    I agree post the next 12 months. Will take awhile for those effects to flow through.

    don’t discount the positive effect of low interest rates on household spending.

    Banks,estate agents, motel owners & current property owners.Current policy settings and lack of ability to build any meaningful housing supply is pushing up prices at an unbelievable rate. They called it a "housing crisis" 3 years ago , if this keeps going it's going to get ugly.

    Very true. With an average mortgage of $400K two years ago at 4.5% now at 2.5% that's more than $150 per week extra in people's pockets.
    No butts, hold no mutts, (unless they're the furry variety).

    Not that simple. The 400k of two years ago is nearer 350k now on new purchases as a result of the lower interest rate.

    Hi Beagle , the example you quote I believe is assuming Interest only . Most households will be on P&I. So the figures will be as follows . ( Still a good saving)
    $ 400 K , I/O 4.5 % Weekly payment $ 346.15 :2.5 % : $ 192.31 saving $ 153.84
    $ 400K , P&I 4.5 % weekly payment $ 467.39: 2.5 % : $ 364.53 saving $ 102.86
