Jeffrey Carmichael is the latest monetary policy expert to have urged the Reserve Bank of Australia to begin increasing official interest rates. The inaugural chairman of the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority has warned of the economic risks of failing to begin raising the cash rate when other central banks are doing so. He has suggested that there may be a need for up to eight rate rises, but stresses the need to do so gradually. He adds that the domestic economy is strong enough to absorb rate rises without any significant risk. Carmichael worked at the RBA for two decades.
