The Reserve Bank's throwing a bit of cold water on the economy.
It's increased the Official Cash Rate to 0.5 per cent, the first change in more than 18 months.
Cameron Bagrie from Bagrie Economics told Simon Barnett and James Daniels it's made the change because we're at near full employment, inflation's heading towards four per cent, and there's a booming property market.
“What the Reserve Bank is saying at the moment: time to turn down the heat. They're not tightening the screws on the economy because the Official Cash Rate at 0.5 per cent is still incredibly low.”
