Household Saving Negative

Some signs of the debt binge ending are apparent with the release of September quarter national accounts. Household savings are still negative but less so (-1.9%).

Also released yesterday was the ABS house price series for September quarter showing price falls in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Hobart.
