It’s a great question and it is one which lots of you are asking today, after the Reserve Bank once again dropped interest rates.

Our team of journalists didn’t quite have the background knowledge to be 100 percent sure of the answer.

And to be perfectly honest…she doesn’t know either.


Sorry about that.

But in some completely unrelated news, the amazing job of Chief Economist is now vacant!  To apply, visit and follow the instructions.
