It is refreshing to see such a balanced analysis of this report. Quality journalism seems to be a disappearing art in the face of attention-grabbing, sensationalist headlines. Congratulations Stephen (An IMF tick for Australian banks, January 25).
Great analysis, Stephen, such a welcome change from the superficial stuff we see elsewhere (An IMF tick for Australian banks, January 25).
I'd love to see some detailed discussion on the cost of our banks' funding long-term housing loans; surely it's not the daily cash rate so beloved by our Treasurer?
If so, then our banks would have a tremendously bad mismatch in duration between assets & liabilities - I bet APRA would be worried about that!
