RBA Cash Rate December 2022: Has Australia Reached Its Inflation Summit?

As we start to close out the year that was, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has just released its last official cash rate for 2022!  

As global economic outlook shifts to a more “positive” note with the US and Australia seeming to have escaped a recession, have we just received another early Christmas present from the RBA?  

Tune in to find out if the cash rate has been paused for the first time in 7 months, plus Ben unpacks these key themes in this month’s economic update: 

  • The slowing of interest rate hikes in the US  
  • A case for pausing interest rates in Australia moving forward  
  • How the property market will finish out 2022 and begin 2023
