id rather see borrowers paying for stronger banks (via higher interest rates and fat profits) than general taxpayers shouldering the bailout of uncontrolled binge lending (eg RBS).

Unrelated. Irresponsible lending lead to the RBS Northern Rock messes. You could have huge rates and go bust because you lent without due diligence.

Yep competition never cuts costs for consumers. Percent dif between lending rate and borrowing rate is not ROE.

APRA changed regulations in Australia after Wastepac nearly collapsed in the nineties. Those regulations are regarded as one of the main reasons Australia avoided the worst real estate excesses other countries ran into.

Toodle doo and learn some history and economics.

Savings rates are variable,like a mortgage they have nothing to do with cash rate.At present I get 5.1%on an e account with westpac,it has to be renewed every 3 months,the guy at the bank does it for me.The top rate from memory was 5.8%,cash rates are down 1%,for that account rates are down 0.7%,seems reasonable to me,what would your version of reality be?

WBC are very happy to pay me that 5.1%,they are happy to lend it out say at an average rate of 7.1%. Round it shall we,the bank buys the money at 5% and sells it at 7%,gross profit margin of 2%,what would your version of reality be?That is net interest margin,nothing at all to do with ROE,do you know what ROE is?

APRA is a watchdog (1 of)that overseas financial institutions,without an APRA licence it is illegal to operate as a DTI in oz,do explain how you manage to come to the conclusion that APRA saved us from the GFC which was more of a north atlantic/med crisis.Neither the banks nor APRA saved us from the supposed GFC.

I hope those banks continue to make profits,would you rather be in the deep shit that the aforesaid N/A/med is in.

Ah the stupidity of the sheep as they all bleat the same,I'll ask the same question again,we will all be dead before you or any body else will be able to explain it.

WHY WOULD COMPETITION REDUCE MORTGAGE RATES OR PRICES.

PLEASE,PLEASE explain,I would love to know.
