Rates on hold because of the upcoming election? That would be my guess…

The Reserve Bank of Australia has left the interest rates at a record 2.5 pc low with rates cut eight times since November 2011 in a bid to ease the transition to a less mining-dependent economy and prevent too much of a surge in unemployment.

It is my opinion that the rates were left on hold because of the upcoming federal election with voting this Saturday 7th August. So don’t forget to head down to your local voting centre and make your vote count on election day!
