Professional Development Seminar: Misread Inflationary Signals and the RBA's Policy Conundrum - ONLINE ONLY

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Thursday Jul 27, 2023, 12:30 pm

Australia is a small open economy, characterized by full capital mobility and a floating exchange rate system, where the interest rate is predominantly influenced in global financial markets. If the RBA or any central bank of a small open economy attempts to resist rate hikes while the US Federal Reserve or the European Central Bank increase their benchmark rates, the Australian dollar will depreciate, making the prices of imported goods and services in the CPI basket more expensive, subsequently requiring the RBA to raise the cash rate even further and faster.
