And the Ides is yet to come
Wry & Dry thought it was going to be a weird month. And so it has - and the Ides  is still ahead of us.
Consider this potpourri of events (and W&D's mused predicted response):
- The iron ore price jumped 19% on Monday, some sort of Bob Beamon  record. But it fell 9% the next day. ("The government will not use the additional budget revenue for additional spending").
- The Australian dollar has leapt by 4.5% this month (Barnaby Joyce: "This is bad news for farmers. We need compensation from the government").
- The share-market has leapt by 5.3% ("what goes up...").
- Disclosure of former PM Abbott's office being rather like Lady-Macbeth-comes-to-Hitler's-bunker (watch out for the movie).
- ASIC, the corporate Labrador, sues ANZ for market manipulation (ANZ: "the ANZ will vigorously defend the action").
- CommInsure, the life insurance arm of the CBA, has some pretty dirty washing aired in the media (CBA CEO to CBA comms department: "just copy the apology we used for the financial planning scandal").
- Clive Palmer regains control of his broken nickel refinery and promptly sacks 500 workers ("Vote for the Palmer United Party. We represent Australian workers").
W&D's take on all of this? Keep calm. And carry on. The Ides is yet to come.
