now, this isn't just a stab at trying to rectify the comments in my last post, but there's something mighty suspicious about the behaviour of the board of the reserve bank.
sure, it could just be me believing too much of the hype in the SMH, but there is definitely something fishy going on.
i'd be curious to know how politicised the board has become, especially considering the tendency of most aspects of the australian bureacracy to have adopted conservatism since the beginning of the howard government. of course, accusing the reserve of being conservative is stating the obvious, but, there really is the stench of favours about this one.
if i can i'll do a little websearch in the next few days to find out who these people are.
