    So, the RB talks about all the "other" weapons they have to combat the current crisis but the first reaction is to use the same old move - cut the cash rate!

    it feels very ironic to me that the RBNZ hasnt even had time to implement its strategy to combat a 'one in 200 year' event before that very event happens , and even worse they decide to delay implementation of that strategy.

    statistics are so useless huh. Fat tails rule the day.

    When investors are euphoric, they are incapable of recognizing euphoria itself.

    I'm actually quite impressed by what Orr is saying today, and I comment that I am increasingly unimpressed with how niggardly Reddell is in his criticisms. A real croaker as he calls himself. I think he must have a bee in his bonnet about something..... Very knowledgeable and thorough though.

    I expect that they will with regard to overdrafts and floating rate loans. Fixed rate loans are another matter though, being financed by fixed rate funding. We'll see.

    I red (from BusinessDesk) that he got all testy with the journalists when they kept pressing for his view on whether there would be a recession - and then eventually conceded it was likely.

    Nobody has blinked yet , it usually takes a day or 2 . It would probably be prudent to wait until they see what the Govt is rolling out .
    Obviously if RBNZ start purchasing bonds that would lead to some decent drops in the fixed rates .

    Of course there will be a recession, and of course Orr has to try not to predict it. Any financial journalist will know that, and if they need Orr to confirm what they know, they should switch to writing the gardening column. The big question is will it be worse than a recession?
