The Reserve Bank of Australia’s deputy governor Guy Debelle has indicated that there is potential for further monetary policy easing. The central bank has left the cash rate unchanged at 1.5 per cent since August 2016, and it has signalled in the past that a rate rise is more likely than a cut. Debelle has also indicated that the RBA could adopt a quantitative easing policy if it is considered necessary in order to stimulate the economy. He has also praised Labor’s fiscal stimulus at the onset of the global financial crisis, saying it was a key factor in the resilience of the domestic economy.
