The Distillery: RBA punchline

Jotters look at the serious side of the Reserve Bank governor's humour-tinged speech, with one highlighting a strict surplus message for Canberra.

Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens is a rather measured public figure and the reaction to yesterday’s speech in Brisbane perhaps reveals a little of the reasoning behind it. The guy makes a joke about how long the bank’s board thought about cutting rates on Tuesday and the market goes bananas. You’re never allowed to have fun as the RBA boss.
