Who Cares: Trump Addresses Congress

Tuesday 28th February 2017

I saw a major headline this morning talking about President Trump [gulp].

Love or Loathe him it’s easy to become immune to the media’s obsession over him and the events overseas.

*** Who cares right?  ***

We’re down under, miles away from Washington, Europe and all the dramas.

Except for the fact that New Zealand is heavily reliant on overseas trade – and also overseas finance. So those events worlds away DO have an impact, not only on exporters and importers but on anyone that has borrowings and/or savings.

But how, and what do you do about it?
