    Fortescue CEO Nev Power backs Andrew Forrest's call for production cap; Baosteel critical

    Fortescue is standing by its idea for a cap on iron ore production, despite serious criticism from major customers and an investigation by Australia's competition watchdog. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission revealed to the ABC's The World Today program on Wednesday that it would be investigating Mr Forrest's comments because they may be construed as urging cartel behaviour. "There are provisions within the act that allow for totally export driven industries to put things in place that are not available for domestic supply and there are a host of options that are available," he told presenter Elysse Morgan.

  • Economic slump presents chance for reform AAP - 13 hours ago

    One of the first economists to predict February's rate cut says the Reserve Bank should now put the razor away to avoid bursting what has already become a housing bubble. Steen Jakobsen, chief economist at Denmark's Saxo Bank, says the Australian economy has hit rock bottom and has a 50/50 chance of falling into recession this year. We've got a housing bubble on our hands, and our economy and political system are a mess, he says. Although the data suggest the economy is in freefall, things are starting to turn around, as February's rate cut and the lower exchange rate begin to take effect, he said.
