Politics podcast: James Pearson on the knife-edge result and business confidence.

The election has plunged Australia into uncertainty and placed a possible question mark over the country for companies looking to invest. Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry CEO James Pearson tells Michelle Grattan that businesses are disappointed there isn’t a clear result and that policies that are pro-business will now be harder to get through parliament.

“The call from business now is to get on with the job of leading and running the country and making decisions for the future,” he says.
