Earlytrade’s Head of Treasury, Sam MacPherson recently joined David Thornton on ‘Friends With Money’ by Money Magazine to discuss the implications of the Great Supply Chain Disruption on inflation and interest rates

As the world emerges from the pandemic, an economic headache lingers with broader concerns arising for Aussie business leaders. Global supply chains are in crisis with energy shortages, shipping congestion and a lack of semi-conductors, among other things, which threaten to derail the economic recovery and add to inflationary pressures.

To find out what the ripple effect could be for Australia, Money Magazine’s David Thornton caught up with Sam MacPherson, Head of Treasury at Earlytrade, to discuss what parts of the Australian economy are most exposed, and what it could mean for business leaders as they approach the busy Christmas period.

MacPherson draws on insights from Earlytrade’s Australian Supply Chain Scorecard, September Quarter Outlook to understand the working capital pressures on businesses and to gauge confidence ahead of what increasingly looks like a recovery shrouded in uncertainty.
