The Governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand was looking for markets to react when he cut interest rates by half a percent on Wednesday - and according to Kiwibank’s chief economist, Jarrod Kerr, he got a result.

Kerr and Kiwibank’s head of financial markets, Peter Hunt, discuss the reaction after Governor Adrian Orr decided on the surprisingly large cut.
