- Quantitative easing (QE) could resume in February 2022.
Australians are expected to breathe a sigh of relief in 2022 with the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) expecting the economy to recover from the COVID-19 induced contraction.
The RBA has also lifted its outlook for inflation, as a range of Australia’s trading partners report higher inflation rates from consumers and companies continuing to scramble to secure access to goods which are perceived to be short in supply.
