Hide / Show Abstract

Activity thus far in 2007 has picked up markedly in a context of unprecedented high prices for New Zealand’s major commodity exports, maintaining pressure on resources and inflation. Monetary conditions have been tightened, while domestic risk spreads have widened in conjunction with the international financial-market turbulence. These factors should cause growth to slow over the near term, allowing a moderation of inflation and eventual monetary easing.
