Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison believes that the Reserve Bank of Australia should cease reducing the cash rate, arguing that monetary policy has reached the limit of its effectiveness in stimulating the economy. He says the focus should now shift to fiscal policy. The central bank has reduced the cash rate twice in 2016 but left it on hold at 1.5 per cent in October. Morrison notes that the heads of other central banks have acknowledged the declining effectiveness of monetary policy.
