When will interest rates turn? Brad's view

Shared Lunch

The economy has been a bleak subject for much of this year. But are we starting to see light at the end of the tunnel?

We talk to Infometrics Principal Economist Brad Olsen about how NZ is faring and what makes our situation different to other parts of the world. 

Unsurprisingly the higher interest rate environment dominates our conversation and Brad predicts which way the Reserve Bank will lean when it reviews the official cash rate on 22 May. 

This episode covers what you need to know about inflation, house price movements and which sectors investors need to look out for. Plus the untapped potential that is Japan.
