The terms "hawkish" and "dovish" are commonly used to describe a country's monetary policy as implemented by its central bank.
Hawkish comes from the word Hawk, which means "Eagle," and Dovish comes from the word "dove," which means "pigeon."
Hawkish (Eagle) is a dangerous hunter known for its aggressive nature. Raising interest rates to reduce current inflation is associated with monetary policy.
The Dovish (Pigeon) is best known for its low-flying and cautious behaviour. Lowering interest rates is associated with monetary policy as a driver of economic growth.
