What would an Australian version of QE look like?


From: Wednesday August 21, 2019, 12:30 pm

To: Wednesday August 21, 2019, 2:00 pm

The RBA has resumed easing monetary policy and, if futures market pricing is to be believed, RBA will take the cash rate below 1% in 2020. As the so-called “zero-bound” for conventional policy is approached discussion about the use of alternative monetary policy, including quantitative easing, will intensify. The RBA has indicated that options involving a deeper rummage around in the monetary policy tool kit have been road-tested but are unlikely to be needed in Australia. We shall see. This event features a panel of eminent economists, academics and bankers and examines what QE and other unconventional policies in Australia may look like, and what the implications of implementation might be.
