dc.description.abstractSouth Africa appears to share some of the characteristics (property price boom, easing ofmonetary policy, strong domestic demand growth) of asset price booms in industrialcountries that were often followed by a period of weak growth. The international experiencesuggests that a number of practical obstacles need to be overcome before a more proactiverole of monetary policy is warranted. However, a larger variety of available mortgagecontracts, including longer-term fixed-rate contracts, should allow for a more efficientallocation of interest rate risks. Also, a more systematic nationwide collection of propertyprice data, including data on commercial property price developments, would provide a morerepresentative basis for analysis.en_US
