The Reserve Bank’s policy actions and balance sheet

The Economic Society of Australia invites you to join its next national webinar at 12.30pm on 30 June with Guy Debelle, Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia.

The webinar will provide the Bank’s analysis of the extensive responses it has made to the pandemic.  These extend well beyond a reduction in the cash rate to include: a preparedness to buy government bonds in whatever quantities are needed to achieve a target yield on government bonds; introduction of a Term Funding Facility for authorised deposit taking institution; using open market operations to provide plenty of liquidity in financial markets; and bond purchases to promote smooth functioning of the market for government securities. 

There are a lot of interesting issues to cover!  The address will be followed by a Q&A session.
