I live in Canberra, but I must admit that until tonight I have never really stopped to watch the Federal Budget. But tonight my work put on pizza and wine, so I decided to stay back and watch it. I am not a specialised economic commentator, but I wanted to provide some thoughts – based on part on what I perceive is my own interest as to how I and most of my readers will be affected.
Living in Canberra, many of my friends and public servants. And many of them head off for overseas postings. It is exciting and adventurous, yet there is a downside -what about accompanying spouses? How do they manage financially on posting?
