RBA Cash Rate April 2022: An Invasion, a Mandate and a Federal Budget… What does this mean for you?

Another month, another cash rate! A lot has been happening both internationally and domestically over the past month. The Russia-Ukraine war continues, the floods in QLD & NSW, the release of the Federal Budget 2022/23 and heaps more.  

If you’re interested in understanding who the winners and losers of the Federal Budget 2022/23 are, make sure to tune in to Episode 384 of The Property Couch’s podcast where we unpack everything on the budget as well as answer a few of our listeners’ questions. You can tune in here >> 

Back to today’s RBA release, here are our three other key themes for this month’s economic update: 

  • The current economic impact of Russia’s invasion 
  • Will China’s Covid elimination mandate cause further global supply & inflation problems?
