Economists James Morley from the University of Sydney and Mark Crosby of Monash University say the Reserve Bank of Australia needs to increase official interest rates. Crosby says the cash rate is at an "unhealthy level" at just 1.5 per cent and it is safe to begin tightening monetary policy. Morley argues that there is scope for at least two rate rises without having any adverse impact on the economy. Former RBA board member Warwick McKibbin has called for an increase in the cash rate.
