A double data shot may shake and stir

GDP figures next week will make an impression on voters, as would any surprise from the Reserve Bank. But which way are the data most likely to sway?

Next week, the final week of the 2013 election campaign, sees two potentially huge economic events. On Tuesday the Reserve Bank of Australia will announce its decision on interest rates and on Wednesday, just three days before the election, the Australian Bureau of Statistics will release the GDP data for the June quarter.

A shock result for either event might sway a few wavering voters one way or the other.
