Quick Question

Recommended Posts

Any one know the difference between a hawk and a dove. I think i know just wanna be double sure. Cheers

Hawk and Dove can be used in different contexts, so you need to be sure of what issue it's refering to.

But in relation to interest rate policy, 'hawk' means someone who tends to have a preference to raise interest rates (usually for fear of inflation or overheating of the economy) and 'dove' means someone who has the preference to lower interest rates (usually for fear that the economy is underperforming)
