Former ANZ Bank chairman Charles Goode has urged Treasurer Josh Frydenberg to work with the Reserve Bank of Australia to cut its inflation target to as low as one per cent. Goode also believes that the Australian Securities & Investment Commission’s responsible lending rules are restricting lending, and he doubts that people like Frank Lowy and Harry Triguboff would have been able to establish their property businesses if the current responsible lending rules had been around in the post-World War II years. Goode says having a lower inflation target would end the RBA’s obsession with reducing interest rates to meet what he argues are outdated inflation targets.
