SYDNEY: Australia’s economy is expected to avoid recession in the coming year even as its top trading partner China slows sharply on Covid restrictions and rapid US policy tightening raises risks of a downturn there.

Soaring export prices and a weaker currency are bringing a cash windfall Down Under at a time when other developed economies are flashing warning signs.

A very tight labour market and still-elevated savings are also helping Australian households cope with rapidly increasing borrowing costs.

“We expect a soft landing, not a recession,” said Jo Masters, chief economist at Barrenjoey Markets Pty Ltd.

“Australia is both an energy and food exporter, and the Australian dollar is – and expected to remain – below fair value.”

Bloomberg surveys backed her view: the chance of recession in the next year in Australia is 25%, versus 60% in the UK, 50% in the United States and 35% in New Zealand.

Expectations that Australia will avoid two straight quarters of contraction are reflected in a bond market where the yield curve has steepened.

That contrasts with US yield curves that have inverted, a sign recession may be coming.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is in the midst of its sharpest tightening cycle in a generation, having raised rates by 2.25 percentage points since May.

But it’s now approaching a neutral rate, potentially allowing it to return to smaller, quarter percentage-point moves.

That compares with a Federal Reserve that may deliver a third straight three-quarter-point increase later this month.

Indeed, global policy makers have warned that inflation must be defeated even at the cost of economic growth.

That also contrasts with RBA rhetoric highlighting the need to keep its economy on “an even keel.”

A key reason for the RBA’s less hawkish stance is a lower starting point for inflation compared with offshore counterparts.

Consumer-price growth is also not expected to reach the alarming highs recorded in the US and elsewhere.

There is also little evidence of a wage-price spiral emerging, with pay rises remaining relatively moderate even as labor shortages worsen.

Economists predict unemployment held at a 48-year low of 3.4% in August ahead of jobs data out yesterday.

Australia has also been a rare beneficiary of fallout from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as disruptions to commodity and energy supplies have sent coal and other prices soaring.

The nation posted a record-high monthly trade surplus this year fuelled by sales of coal, iron ore and liquefied natural gas.

“We have a tailwind from our terms of trade that other countries just don’t have,” said Alex Joiner, chief economist, IFM Investors.

“The export of LNG and coal have been extraordinarily beneficial.

“Our budget position will be in a much better position than many advanced economies.”
