Stable rates we can bank on

By MATHEW CHARLES and IAN LOVETT

June 9, 2005

HOMEOWNERS can sleep easier after the Reserve Bank's decision to keep interest rates stable provoked forecasts they are unlikely to move north this year.


Experts are even suggesting the next change could be downwards, either later this year or early next year.

Under that scenario the RBA would drop rates to breathe life into a slowing economy and help combat rising unemployment.


While the RBA never explains why it keeps rates unchanged, AMP Capital Investors chief economist Shane Oliver said there was no reason to support a rise.


"On all fronts, the case for raising interest rates has dried up," he said.


But a raft of tepid economic data had few tipping the RBA would increase rates from the four-year high of 5.5 per cent the bank pushed them to in March.

"breathe life into a slowing economy and help combat rising unemployment"
"raft of tepid economic data "
Where does that come from? House prices in a slump, every retailer has a sale on, billions pumped into a war no one wants to know about etc. Yep, the RBA kept them on hold because to raise them would affect a fragile economy guided by the grinning PMwannabe. We still don't see the national infrastructure projects that would lift employment and assist business - instead we get handouts to individuals who don't need them.

Doesn't mean I believe that the other mob would do a better job, just that the encumbants are very uninspiring.
