The RBA gets hawkish on asset prices –

I believe that the RBA is determined to prevent any reinvigoration of the Australian housing bubble……. yesterday we had [] confirmation that the bank is structurally remodelling itself as an asset price hawk, with the appointment of Phil Lowe to the deputy governorship. In 2002, whilst working at the BIS [he] wrote a defining paper on the identification and targeting of asset prices….his history shows both the intelligence and fearlessness needed to be an effective senior governor. Bravo.
