More interesting and technical discussion on interest rates and the value of the kiwi dollar here. Note that Gareth advances a strong additional reason for not penalising investors choosing to invest abroad. Also note that in both the likely and unlikely scenarios the kiwi dollar falls - its just the speed, not the direction, that differs. Here in the office Margaret says "Oh Good, I could do with a bit of that". But we do not all have the same skew to UK assets that Margaret has. I suspect the final implication - lower house prices - will also have my property investor-mate Campbell hopping mad. He has a poor view of economists at the best of times.
