Garry Barker and Leon Gettler - The Federal Budget - Talking Business 2010 Ep 16c

A review of the week in business, with expert analysis and commentary

This week Garry and Leon analyze the Federal Budget and its implications and the class action against the banks for exception fees. They look at the housing shortage and signs of falling confidence in the Australian economy with weaker retail figures and interest rate rises. They examine the response of markets to the euro-zone bailout package and whether it's going to work. There is a close look too at Lion Nathan's performance, pulling well ahead of its rival Foster's. The miners' war on the Federal Government's super profits tax is also examined. And finally, they look at the National Broadband Network and discuss whether it can go ahead without Telstra.
