Great commentary here from the CEO of Australian based ANZ, Mike Smith. Smith unloads an unusual dose of honesty (from a banker no less!) on listeners when he says the economy is probably much weaker than most are willing to admit. Smith believes we are far from out of the woods and that the second half will prove pivotal in the global recovery.
