Have we seen the end of OCR hikes? - The Front Page

The Front Page

The Reserve Bank this week lifted the Official Cash Rate to 5.5 per cent, as expected.  

But the big surprise came when Reserve Bank Governor Adrian Orr told Kiwis that his work was done and that the Reserve Bank didn’t see the need to lift rates any higher. 

So why has the Reserve Bank suddenly changed its mind on further hikes? Are Kiwis in for a longer run of inflation? And what factors will have the biggest impact on the economy over the next 12 months?    
Today, on the Front Page, NZ Herald Wellington business editor Jenée Tibshraeny explains the repercussions from the latest OCR hike.
