Friends With Money #77: The year that was


We've almost reached the end of another rollercoaster year, but before jumping into 2023, it's time to take stock of 2022.

In this special episode of Friends With Money, editor-in-chief Michelle Baltazar catches up with senior journalist Tom Watson to unpack the stories which really struck a chord with Money readers (and listeners) during the year, and to talk about the lessons that can be taken from 2022. They discuss:

  • Retiring early
  • Scams, scams and more scams
  • The ins and outs of capital gains tax
  • Investor appetite for shares and property
  • Avoiding dud super funds
  • Electric vehicle incentives
