Australia is on track to run its first current-account surplus since 1975, but it’s coming at precisely the wrong time. The dramatic turnaround is probably not what the Reserve Bank is after, because with a cash rate at a record-low 1% and forecast to drop to 0.5% next year, a current-account surplus suggests the currency might be a bit stronger than it otherwise would be and investment somewhat softer — the opposite of what’s needed in 2019. Meanwhile, an expected budget surplus means the government isn’t providing much stimulus to an economy that’s slowed sharply and where rate ammunition is running low.
Australia’s Crown Resorts on Thursday said it had been informed that a planned US$1.2 billion stake sale by casino mogul James Packer to Melco Resorts & Entertainment had been delayed.
