Once Were Inflation Warriors
Terry McCrann on former inflation hawks Hewson and Jonson:
OK, you drop the 2-3 target and replace it with . . . what exactly?
Hewson’s 3-4 per cent? Maybe 4-6 per cent? Perhaps a return to a 1970s: hey babe, whatever feels good? Or a vague, contradictory and confusing ‘check list’?
Whatever, the clear implication is that we should accept a “little more inflation”.
Apart from the fact that the RBA is already explicitly doing that - something most of the critics either don’t understand, or wilfully ignore.
