Should the Reserve Bank target employment as well as inflation? – the coalition’s plan to abolish the dual mandate
Back in 1989 – the inflation-busting Reserve Bank Act was passed.
In 2021 Grant Robertson added maximum sustainable employment to the bank’s mandate – with the support of coalition partner NZ First.
The coalition government has committed to a return to the 1989 objective.
The participants in our Fabian panel will be:
- Grant Robertson – former Finance Minister
- Nona Pelletier – RNZ’s senior business journalist
