Thierry Albert Wizman of Macquarie Group notes that the Reserve Bank of Australia is the only major central bank among developed countries that has not flagged a rise in official interest rates. The Bank of Canada is widely tipped to tighten monetary policy again in mid-January, while the general consensus of economists is that US interest rates will rise in March. Meanwhile, New York Federal Reserve president William Dudley recently warned that factors such as the low unemployment rate in the US and the Trump administration’s tax cuts could potentially see the US economy "overheat".
