Independent Says Budget Helps Retailing

-     **  I think what the Government’s saying is there is a bit of a mini-stimulus package going on for south-eastern Australia and the east coast in regards to particular sectors of the economy such as retail, tourism and construction. You combine this money into the pocket with moves such as the loss carry-back for small business and you start to see a narrative from Government that they are starting to recognise certain sectors in the economy are flat lining at the moment, general confidence amongst consumers is down and it needs a bit of a hurry up.**
