Simon Kuestenmacher's Crystal Ball Demographic Forecasts and Real Estate

Simon Kuestenmacher's Crystal Ball Demographic Forecasts and Real Estate
I’ve often said that demographic changes will be more important in shaping our property markets in the medium to long term than the ups and downs of interest rates or the vagaries of our economy, so I’m pleased to have leading demographer Simon Kuestenmacher back on the show. Simon is a co-founder of The Demographics Group and a master in interpreting data and trends to forecast how societies evolve, and his insights are pivotal for anyone interested in property, lifestyle changes, and investment strategies. Recently Simon wrote a series of articles in The New Daily outlining the changes he sees ahead for us in the next decade and what these shifts mean for our future. We shift our focus today to Australia's economic future, considering our ties with China and how the evolving global Chinese middle class will interact with our exports amidst demographic challenges. We then dissect the educational landscape, discussing the potential impact of an over-saturated university graduate market. As society changes, we also discuss shifts in media consumption habits and concerns over AI's influence on news quality. If you’re a property investor or a business owner, you’ll want to understand what these trends mean for you, and like all my regular chats with Simon, this conversation promises to be thought-provoking.

Don’t Fall for the Trap: Navigating the Minefield of Financial Scams with Stuart Wemyss
In an age where financial transactions have largely moved online, the prevalence of financial scams has surged, catching many Australians off guard. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission reports that Australians lost a record $3.1 billion to scams in 2022. This is an 80 per cent increase in total losses recorded in 2021. This staggering loss highlights not just the cunning of scammers but also their ability to adapt to changing technologies and exploit new vulnerabilities. So, in today’s podcast with independent financial advisor Stuart Wemyss, I want to ask him how to spot the signs of a scam. Our conversation today is an eye-opener, revealing common tactics scammers use to exploit the digital landscape and deceive individuals. We touch on personal experiences and the various types of scams, such as phishing and false billing. Whether you're an experienced investor or a beginner, this episode is packed with practical insights and data-driven predictions to help you make informed decisions.  Amidst sharing these insights, we underscore the significance of safeguarding personal and financial information and discuss how banks' robust security measures, though sometimes inconvenient, are critical in protecting us from these fraudulent activities.
