    3. How The Government is Fixing the Predatory Payday Loan Problems

      How The Government is Fixing the Predatory Payday Loan Problems

      Thought we'd share this fascinating piece from AFR. It's called 'Predatory and unscrupulous': MP targets payday lenders.

      There's some important points to be tackled here. This one, in particular, is something that we thought should get some attention:

      While small amount credit lenders and consumer lease providers play an important role by providing credit to consumers who, in many instances, are unable to access mainstream forms of finance, the government will not stand for predatory behaviour by lenders.

      The government is currently considering public submissions on the final reforms to ensure the right balance is struck between ...

    4. Businesses Are Required to Constantly Transform

      Businesses Are Required to Constantly Transform

      Came across this fascinating article from the FInancial Review and thought that we would share it. It's called 'Transformation as Usual' is Here to Stay.

      There are some really thought-provoking ideas being shared by David Maloney here. This one's particularly intriguing: 

      I believe that “transformation as usual”, or TAU, is a term that is here to stay. The old “business as usual” (BAU) won’t cut it in a business environment that is moving at breakneck speed.

      TAU speaks to the need to respond to ever-changing demands in business at a speed and magnitude that hasn’t previously ...

    7. Is the reign of the US dollar coming to an end?

      Is the reign of the US dollar coming to an end?

      Without question, Libra could become a widely used form of payment – partly because Facebook has more than 2 billion monthly active users, but also because the existing financial system is full of inefficiencies. If private money could make it cheaper, easier, and safer to make payments, then consumers would be happy to use it. Few people care what is under the hood of the monetary engine; most just want crash-proof transactions.

    10. Why Change Management is Important

      Why Change Management is Important

      Tech is disrupting many different industries in a huge way.  Here's an article that we thought we'd share to help businesses cope with the fast changes that it induces. It's called Change Management is the Key to Digital Strategy.

      It shares some interesting insights. Here's one that's thought-provoking:

      This transformation may include introducing new tech – because there is more of it and it’s cheaper – but the tech on its own, without the underlying changes to business processes, and change management, is going to fail.

    11. The Importance of Systems

      The Importance of Systems

      This article from Australian Financial Review piqued our curiosity. The author calls it Cultural Convergence and we thought we'd share it here.

      It offers up some nuggets of wisdom. This one, in particular, was very thought-provoking:

      While the culture of an organisation is usually thought of as its people, Sammartino’s take is different – he says it is the systems the people move around in.

      For that reason, he says the best way to change the culture is to change the physical space people work in.

      The Cashless Trend Can Become a Problem to Retirees

      Sweden's retirees are having trouble with the rapid technological developments there as cash has now almost obsolete. While it's a boon to some of the younger generations, to the elder ones who are not as technologically savvy, this poses a huge problem especially because some essential goods stores are starting to go cashless as well.

      In this Financial Review article, finance journalist Liz Alderman explains that, "cash is being squeezed out so quickly – with half the nation's retailers predicting they will stop accepting bills before 2025 – that the government is recalculating the societal costs of a cash-free ...

    14. The super wars are now fake news

      The super wars are now fake news

      The ideological war that has raged around compulsory superannuation since the Labor government designed the system and implemented it to substitute for wage rises back in 1992, is finally firing blanks.

      While we're still waking to front pages of stern-faced unionists urging Labor to "turf banks out" of super, the real news is that the wealth industry is undergoing one of its most radical periods of change in decades.
