The Australian - The Weekend Australian Business Review


 

Good morning,


This weekend, Richard Gluyas has the inside story of how Afterpay’s stellar success story came to a screeching halt this week.


With its budget looming in the coming week, Nick Evans reports that the NSW government has been given a blunt warning that Sydney’s port and rail freight infrastructure could be made irrelevant unless the state commits to significant rail upgrades.


In Melbourne, Damon Kitney speaks to Laminex chief Justin Burgess, who’s shunning a potential goldmine in property because he believes in manufacturing.


Meanwhile, Perry Williams examines how Australia’s largest coal plant is facing its biggest test yet: cheap renewable energy.


Among your columnists this weekend, Terry McCrann says it’s time for Anthony Albanese to step up, while John Durie finds out why Nora Scheinkestel is in demand as a director.


We hope you enjoy your weekend.
