The minutes of the Reserve Bank of Australia’s board meeting on 5 November show that the central bank gave serious consideration to reducing the cash rate to 0.5 per cent. However, board members took into account factors such as the likely effect of further monetary policy easing on savers and consumer confidence. The board ultimately concluded that the best course of action would be to wait until the impact of previous interest rate cuts became clear.
