What does Labor’s pivot on negative gearing mean for property investors?

In late-July, Michelle Grattan of the University of Canberra penned an article for The Conversation analysing Federal Labor’s ‘small target’ strategy ahead of the 2022 election. The “de-Shortening” of Labor casts aside previous plans to reform franking credit cash refunds and raise taxes on capital gains. In addition, it looks like Federal Labor won’t meddle with tax reform introduced by the Coalition, meaning people earning between $45,000 and $200,000 will face a marginal tax rate of 30 percent (scrapping the 37% rate) from 1 July 2024 onwards. Politically speaking, this appears to be a subtle shift toward the centre by Labor.

Gavin Chau1 Comment on Squid Game: art imitating life

The hit Korean series on Netflix has reached No. 1 in 90 countries. It’s clear that something in the series has captured the zeitgeist, with its recurrent themes of rising levels of economic inequality, the slow death of the middle-class, and the desperation of the protagonist’s situation, where no matter what he does, he feels unable to get ahead.

A global boom in construction and the resultant bottlenecks in the supply chain has seen container shipping rates triple or quadruple since the beginning of the year. A quick look at just about any freight index will show you just how expensive it has gotten to send a 40ft container from one end of the world to another.

Helen shared a great article last week about some of the challenges caused by the series of lockdowns we have all endured over the last 18 months or so. We’re starting to see a growing body of evidence of a mental health ‘shadow pandemic’, but what do things look like for populations who have emerged from the pandemic with higher vaccination rates and a closer resemblance to our pre-COVID lives..?

The market is hot. Should I sell?

Upon the death of his father on 9 August 2016, a 25-year-old Englishman by the name of Hugh Richard Louis Grosvenor became the 7th Duke of Westminster. Along with this title came the inheritance of an estimated £9 billion (around $16.7 billion AUD). The duke’s wealth comes from real estate, an endeavour which his family have pursued for centuries. To illustrate his power and influence, consider that in 2013 he was named godfather of the future King George (eldest child of William and Kate).
