Strategy Radar_2012_0420 – Theme: Debt Deficit Budget Surplus Entitlement

Key headlines this week include items on the ANZ rate hike, QBE and IAG parental leave announcements, the Royal Canadian Mint that enlisted 500 hackers in a contest to develop a digital currency called MintChip.

The theme of the week has been triggered by Joe Hockey’s speech in London calling for the end of the “Age of Entitlement” in the context of the post GFC “Debt – Deficit – Budget Surplus” debate. A debate that will keep polarising the nation for a while and has consequences on Insurance companies and Banks, which are in a broad sense part of the same ‘value chain’ to protect and grow the financial wellbeing of their customers.
