RBNZ monetary policy meeting this week - fewer 'shadow board' members consider further stimulus appropriate
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.
