The chart below is the household spending deflator – or the measure of inflation for Aussie consumers. The current environment is all about inflation. Consumers are spending more because most prices are restrained. Now I could have chosen consumer prices, business prices, mining & rural prices or global inflation. But low inflation means interest rates can stay low. And not only is spending rising but saving also. Current economic circumstances don’t get much better.
