Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: Central Banks

The New Zealand Institute of Economic Research Monetary Policy Shadow Board report ahead of this week's Reserve Bank of New Zealand  meeting.

  • Fewer Board members this quarter consider further monetary policy stimulus is appropriate, particularly when it comes to introducing a negative OCR. 
  • While there was support for an expansion of the Reserve Bank's Large-Scale Asset Purchases (LSAP) programme over the coming year, this stimulus was considered more appropriate beyond the upcoming meeting.
The full report is for NZIER subscribers but a brief release is available here for more.
