buying and selling of government bonds to influence some variable factors (namely investment), which will in turn, help maintain a stable inflation rate and to which, maximise output without putting inflation through the roof.

or a short term macroeconomic fixer

Domestic Market Operations (main instrument in MP) = the buying and selling of commonwealth government securities to influence the cash rate and the general level of interest rates.

Contractionary stance (tightening) : RBA sells government securities = shortage of borrowable funds = increase in cash rates = increase in interest rates.

Expansionary stance (loosening) : RBA buys government securities= excess of borrowable funds = decrease in cash rates = decrease in interest rates.

The objective of tightening is to decrease the supply of money and credit in the economy to SLOW down economic growth.

The objective of loosening is to increase the supply of money and credit in the economy to SPEED up the economic growth.

Should throw 'targetting inflation/sustaining inflationary pressures' in there
