Company pulse | Preview

In 2018, CEDA commissioned its first ever nation-wide survey of community attitudes to economic growth and development. In 2019, CEDA will take the pulse of Australian business in our inaugural Company Pulse: a nationwide survey of the general public and business leaders.

Company Pulse seeks to better understand community expectations of business; and the challenges facing business leaders as they seek to sustain business performance and respond to changing community expectations.

The decline of community trust in business has been much talked about. Rebuilding trust will be difficult without understanding the expectations that underpin trust, and how and where those expectations intersect with strategic business priorities.

Melinda Cilento | Effects of temporary migration: population and workforce

Immigration has strongly shaped Australia’s demography and has always contributed to rich and diverse cultural identity. Today, 28.5 per cent of Australian residents were born overseas.

While there has been a spotlight on the country’s permanent migrant intake, there has been far less focus on Australia’s temporary migrant intake – even though Australia is currently home to two million temporary residents and recent migrants. It is widely cited, that Australia’s desirability as a destination for migrants has contributed to the country’s 28 years of uninterrupted economic growth.

CEDA’s 2019 research Effects of temporary migration will interrogate data to better understand the role that migrants, specifically temporary migrants, play in Australia’s economy. It will provide key insights on how the Australian Government could enhance its approach to temporary migration policy ensuring the stability of the program in the years to come.

Q&A | Reserve Bank Governor keynote

The RBA has now cut official interest rates to the historic low of 1.25 per cent. The rate, which reflects what the central bank charges commercial banks on overnight loans and influences the setting of other interest rates, has sat at a record low of 1.5 per cent since August 2016.

The RBA took this decision citing the desire to support employment growth and provide greater confidence that inflation will be consistent with the medium-term target.

To understand more where the RBA thinks the Australian economy is heading and the role that monetary policy will play in stimulating growth, CEDA is delighted to host RBA Governor, Philip Lowe.

Hassan Noura | Australia's automation opportunity

Hassan Noura | Australia

Powerful new automation technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced robotics are transforming the Australian economy and how we work, presenting an enormous opportunity for national and personal income growth.

McKinsey & Company published in their latest report Australia’s automation opportunity: reigniting productive and inclusive income growth that automation technologies could add up to $4 trillion to Australia’s economy over the next 15 years and provide every Australian with up to $15,000 in additional income by 2030. However, the potential scale and distributional impacts need to be carefully managed to ensure we accelerate automation and adoption in an inclusive way.
