“At its meeting today, the Board decided to lower the cash rate by 25 basis points to 1.00 percent.”
Using the Statistical Tables on the RBA website, find data on monthly Money Market
interest rates. (In Column B of the relevant spreadsheet you’ll find data on the Cash Rate
Target: monthly average, starting from August 1990 to July 2019).
Use this data to construct a graph of the monthly cash rate from August 1994 to July 2016.
Use the graphing tool (line charts) in Excel. Describe the trend in the cash rate. How many
interest rate changes have there been in this period?
Q2. Claim about economic indicators in advanced economies:
“In most advanced economies, inflation remains subdued, unemployment rates are low … .”
a) Collect and present (in line-graph format), annual data for the period from 2009 to 2018,
showing the inflation rate, unemployment rate, and real GDP growth rate for Australia, the
The United States and Japan. The required data can be found in the World Bank website:
Using the graphing tool in Excel, present, for each country, a line graph containing all three
economic indicators. [The first graph will contain the three indicators for Australia. Likewise,
the second line graph will show these for the USA, and the third line graph for Japan]. For
each graph you create, make sure you label each axis, give the graph a title, and reference
the source of the data underneath the graph.

[Note: Please do not attach the excel file with your assignment. You don’t need to report
numerical data, just need to present the line graphs. Please use copy/paste functions to
transfer your plots to your assignment document].
b) What general trends do you observe in the three indicators for each country? Do the trends
in inflation and unemployment confirm the RBA’s observations? Comment on the
relationship between inflation, unemployment and real GDP growth based on the data you
observe. [6 Marks]
Q3. Implications of slower Asian Growth for the Australian economy:
“The slowdown in global trade has contributed to slower growth in Asia…”
Why might the RBA be worried about the slower growth in Asia, especially, in China? Explain
your answer using an Aggregate Expenditure — 450
(You don’t need to use any real-world data to answer this question).
Q4. Claim about the effect of the interest rate cut.
“Over the year to the March quarter, the Australian economy grew at a below-trend
1.8 percent”. … “Today’s decision to lower the cash rate will help make further inroads into the
spare capacity in the economy.”
Given the above statement, use an Aggregate Expenditure —450
line diagram to show the
possible situation in Australia and to explain how the lowering of the cash rate may (or may
not) help the Australian economy moving towards full employment.
(Again you don’t need to use any real-world data to answer this question).
Q5. Sum up:
In your own words write a summary/conclusion about why the RBA decided to lower the
cash rate in July 2019. Include consideration of how/whether the RBA’s actions matched
their stated role. Refer to your graphs and analysis in Q1—Q4 to back your conclusion.
