October 2007 Newsletter

Welcome to Lewis Financial's Newsletter for the month of October 2007.

This month we look at a number of articles by economist Dr Shane Oliver. The first discusses the prospects for Asian economies, as well as investments in the Asian Region, over the next few years.

The second article reviews the 1987 share market crash, the main drivers that led to it and the likelihood of it happening again.

We also look at a commentary on the growth in household debt and what that means for Australia and the US as well as an article discussing the latest surge in oil prices.

We hope, as always, that you find the articles of interest. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
