The Rate Debate – Ep36

Episode 36: Tuesday 7th March 2023

How many times can the RBA say “just one more time”?

After hiking for the tenth consecutive month, the RBA has Australia questioning whether its repeated actions to combat inflation will cause an overshoot and push the nation into recession.

From a wage-price spiral, rising unemployment, and faltering GDP, it seems the consumer and government sectors have been the most exposed to the ongoing “inflationary pulse”. Do we think Australian companies will lead the charge and are we starting to see Fixed Income revert to more atypical behaviour following a challenging 12 months?

Chris and Darren debate this and more in episode 36 of The Rate Debate.
