Q2 GDP was +0.7%qoq and 9.6%yoy, to be pretty much bang-on the RBA’s forecast of 9.5%yoy.
I said this morning that underlying GDP was likely to be a bit better than the headline number suggested.
Even with the stronger headline outcome, this remains true: mostly due to services spending, underlying GDP now seems to have been about 1.25%qoq in Q2. So the economy was doing well pre-Delta.
