Abstract: This paper provides Australian evidence of the comparative forecasting power of the three inflation models (interest rate, time series, and survey forecasts). In particular, it examines the rationality (in the Muthian sense) of the survey forecasts. The following results are obtained: first, the survey forecasts are rational; and, second, the survey has the highest forecasting power.
