Why the sharemarket is pushing higher. Telstra’s perfect storm.

This week in The Money Cafe, James Kirby and I discuss:

  • It’s easy to fire people, but Telstra survive without 1/4 of its employees;
  • Any doubt that Telstra is a bureaucratic organisation has been dispelled by the firings;
  • The French telco boss worse off than Andy Penn;
  • The world’s oldest takeover bid;
  • Where next for Australia’s recovering market?
  • The massive problem facing Australian health care providers; and
  • A big bag of listener questions.
