Ok folks – here is the first of 8 weekly quizzes, with each weekly winner to get a copy of my new book, Myth Busting Economics.

All answers must be emailed to [email protected] by 12.00noon, Canberra time, Wednesday 29 April with the results announced on the weekend. So here we go.

Week 1:

What is the current level (as of today, 27 April 2015) of the official cash rate set by the Reserve Bank of Australia?

Tiebreaker 1:

In what month and year did Australia last have an unemployment rate of 6.3%? (seasonally adjusted ABS data)

Tiebreaker 2:

What will be the share price of Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) at 4pm Friday 1 May? (ASX data will be used)

Tiebreaker 3: 

What will be the level of the Dow Jones industrial average in points at the close of business on Thursday, 30 April 2015 US time? (Bloomberg data will be used)

If we still have a tie after that, I’ll give all winners a copy of the book.

One entry per person – emailed entries only and just confirming after each weekly quiz has been settled, I will delete all emails.
