The general consensus of economists is that the Reserve Bank of Australia will not tighten monetary policy until 2019, after the cash rate was left unchanged at 1.5 per cent on 3 April. RBA governor Philip Lowe again stressed that there is likely to be a gradual fall in the unemployment rate and a rise in the inflation rate to the central bank’s target range. He also said low growth in wages is likely to persist for some time. The RBA has not adjusted official interest rates since August 2016.
