THE Reserve Bank has left the official cash rate on hold at its record low of 1.5 per cent for its fourth meeting of the year, extending Australia’s longest ever run without a change to 21 months.

The previous record of 19 months between January 1995 and July 1996 was surpassed last month. The RBA last cut the cash rate in August 2016, following an earlier cut to 1.75 per cent in May. There has not been an official cash rate increase since November 2010.

AUSTRALIA has been left behind by the US in a key economic driver for the first time in nearly 20 years.

THE US Federal Reserve has raised its official cash rate above that of Australia for the first time in 18 years.

The 25 basis point jump, signalling a vote of confidence in the US economy after a decade of near-zero rates following the GFC, brings the Fed’s short-term rate to a range of 1.5 per cent to 1.75 per cent.

THE thought of leaving the rat race of the bigger cities, and actually having a house you can afford, is something most commuters in big cities have dreamt of.

But most professionals dismiss the idea, believing they’re not going to get a good job outside a major centre.

This is changing. New jobs are being created in the regions, and this, along with improving infrastructure, and working from home options are giving many people the chance to take the plunge and give themselves a better life. Here are five great regional cities to consider.

Australia's main stock exchange has said it will become the first global market to use the technology behind Bitcoin to clear and settle trades.

The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) will replace its current clearing system with blockchain technology.

Temperatures across southern Queensland and northern NSW have been up to 13 degrees Celsius above the August maximum on a number of days this week, and while climate change may the words on everyone's lips, it is not the whole story.

Why so hot?

The consensus among climate scientists the ABC spoke to is that it is hot because of what has not been happening in the atmosphere.

Sydney commuters will get the chance to book shuttle buses from or near their homes to a local transport hub within the next few months as part of a state government trial of on-demand public transport.

Pricing for a standard trip will range from $2.60 to $5.60, and customers will be able to book online, by phone or via an app on their smart device.

Melbourne has been declared the most liveable city in the world for the seventh year running by the Economist’s annual global liveability survey, while Sydney remains in 11th place.

It is the first time in the survey’s 15-year history that a city has held the No 1 rank in its own right for seven consecutive years.

The biggest solar thermal power plant of its kind in the world, a 150-megawatt structure set to be built in Port Augusta in South Australia has got the green light.

As well as providing around 650 construction jobs for local workers, the plant will provide all the electricity needs for the state government, with some to spare – and it should help to make solar energy even more affordable in the future.

Brisbane is on the verge of hitting its first $3m suburb, just months after breaking through the magic $2m mark.

Latest CoreLogic market trends data, exclusive to The Courier-Mail yesterday, showed Teneriffe, just 2km from the Brisbane CBD  has taken just three months to power from being the state’s first $2m suburb to sitting on the edge of $3m.

Homeowners living on Brisbane’s south side could be sitting on a “goldmine” thanks to a frenzy of first-home buyers and interstate investors desperate to break into the area.

Local agents say they cannot keep up with demand in suburbs such as Mount Gravatt East, Mount Gravatt and Holland Park West, where prices are rising at a faster rate than the rest of Brisbane.

Plans for a $2 billion arena and entertainment precinct in the heart of Brisbane are set to jump to the next level this week.

Entrepreneur Harvey Lister will meet State Government officials on Friday to discuss progress on his ambitious proposal to transform the city’s ugly Roma St Railyards into a work-class sports and entertainment venue.

The Committee for Sydney conducted research to identify accessible suburbs. The research looked at which places could reach most jobs and services easily.

Kōhanga Ēkara is an early childcare centre which is based in the Brisbane suburb of Eagleby. The first centre of its kind in Australia that teaches both Māori and English, the Kōhanga is also a place for parents to engage in the Māori language.

There is no place better than home to learn the Māori language however, Te Kōhanga Ēkara is also a home for young children living in Brisbane.

WE’VE all heard the screeches of possums fighting high in the treetops and spotted foxes and echidnas crossing the road — but have you heard of eels in the Yarra River or Merri Creek?

There are numerous types of wildlife, including bats, birds, fish and mammals that call Melbourne’s suburbs home.

Foxes have been spotted as close the CBD as Richmond and both brushtail and ringtail possums seen scurrying along fence lines in many inner city suburbs.

SYDNEY could stretch to the Central Coast, Melbourne could hit Geelong and Brisbane could merge with the Gold Coast as super-cities start to take over Australia.

Country towns could be mostly emptied out and the Aussie outback left almost abandoned as most of the nation’s population will flock to Australia’s major capitals — Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.

According to The Australian, two in three people will live in our main cities in the future, as Australia’s population soars to almost 30 million.

WORKERS in our most valued professions will be offered cheaper housing in new developments under a progressive new initiative being discussed by state and federal governments.

In a move to address skyrocketing house prices in Sydney, key workers such as nurses, teachers and police officers will be able to access premium properties at an affordable price, to ensure they are able to afford to live where they work.

The initiative is based a concept called “inclusionary zoning” whereby a certain amount of new construction is to be set aside at affordable prices for people on low to moderate incomes. It is already widely practised in the US and in London.
