9 reasons a recession shouldn’t have you spooked

Talk of a recession in Australia is intensifying, but are things really as bad as they seem? 

 

Not long ago, we discussed how UNSW Business School professor Richard Holden said figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics show "we've now entered an effective recession in Australia."
