‘Crowding out’ and its impact on GDP
RMIT economist Alberto Posso talks about Australia’s GDP rising 0.5%, raising questions about the Government spending crowding out private sector investment. He also looks at the drop in mining investment and asks whether manufacturing and agriculture can level the balance.
