“The Banks's recent minutes were almost upbeat on the domestic economy, suggesting on this basis at least the glass may be assessed as being more half full than half empty. And although it does not seem to be getting fuller faster, it may not get any emptier.

“We have characterized this as risks shifting gradually from the business sector toward the household sector. Survey business sentiment is passable, but not outperforming as yet despite hopes for further improvement with the change in government leadership. Yet surveyed conditions are improving steadily in trend terms and we continue to highlight that on a historical basis it unusual for the RBA to be easing monetary policy while this is the case.”
