Money makes the world go round. It’s the age-old truth that we’re all familiar with.

But it makes our politicians say — and do — the most outrageous things. And sometimes, it’s enough to make your head spin.

The Australian housing boom has driven up strong growth in the banking and financial sectors for the past two decades. This has, in turn, meant that the banks now represent a larger portion of the Australian share market — more so than other developed nations.

However, recent financial scandals such as the Royal Commissions have shone a light on the dark corners of the industry and have shaken public confidence in the sector. Consequently, it has people leaning towards the possibilities of cryptocurrency and other fintech opportunities, ones that have existed for years before.

Imagine if you knew of these possibilities before they became necessities?

At The Australian Tribune, we keep our finger on the pulse of Australian and international finance markets to bring you the most important stories affecting your wealth. We’re not afraid to take sides or tell you what we really think when it comes to our economic and political climate.

What splits us apart from other media outlets is that we don’t recycle the same mainstream news. We don’t follow one opinion or take the safe route when reporting our stories.

Because we know that’s not what you want to hear.

We’re different because our editors are passionate about the topics we report. Whether it’s in our own backyard, or across the seas, we’re not afraid to speak out from the rest of the crowd. We cover the topics, and give you answers. We put in the hard yards of research, so you don’t have to.

Whether it’s tech stocks, property or commodities, we’ll keep you up to date on the latest financial news that affects you — the news that you need to know.

Below are some of the most recent stories our editors have covered regarding local and global finance. We encourage you to comment and become part of the conversation with our editors. Read on as we attempt to make some sense of it all.
