ESA National Economic Panel Polls
Royal Banking Commission (II) - February 2019
In the first poll of 2019 – following on from our Banking Royal Commission poll last year about the risk of a credit squeeze, and before the Commission’s Final Report was released – our panellists were asked for their opinions on the following proposition:
"There is no way to significantly increase the degree to which Australian retail banks act in the interests of consumers."
Clearly this is an extreme proposal. Rather than proposing a single policy intervention this poll was designed to draw out a diversity of views and comments.
Overview of poll results
Collaborator credits: we would like to thank our panellists Professor Gigi Foster and Professor Paul Frijters for proposing this question and for their expert overview of the results.
