Poland Raises Irs To 4%


Recommended Posts

Poland’s central bank raised interest rates for the second time this year to damp inflation expectations in an anticipated decision that boosted the zloty.

The Monetary Policy Council lifted the benchmark seven-day rate by a quarter-point to 4 percent, matching the forecast of 22 of 31 economists surveyed by Bloomberg. Nine expected borrowing costs to remain unchanged. The Warsaw-based central bank will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. in Warsaw.

Policy makers across the globe are struggling to contain accelerating inflation, driven by surging food and fuel prices. Since last month, when the Narodowy Bank Polski refrained from raising interest rates, the inflation rate remained above the bank’s 2.5 percent target for a fifth month, while the rate of consumer-price increases expected by consumers in the next 12 months posted its biggest one-month jump in a decade.

“The sharp growth of inflationary expectations in March was surely a crucial argument, since it raises the risk of wage pressure,” Maja Goettig, chief economist at Bank BPH SA in Warsaw, wrote in a research note after the decision. “We expect monetary tightening to continue in coming months and rates to rise by 50 basis points through the end of the year.

“if the Polish central bank is considering a rate increase in the second quarter, it’s better to do it early,” Piotr Kalisz, chief economist at Citibank Handlowy in Warsaw, said before the decision. “April is the right moment due to the restrictive rhetoric coming from the ECB.

You missed the bit where it said inflation was 3.6% in Feb.

Look at that.... inflation 3.6% and base rate 4%... a proper country where saver's aren't seeing their hard earned wealth destroyed

Thank god for Silver!

;)

Indeed. Just worked out that the value of my physical silver investment has trebled in the 2 years since I bought in. Plenty more action to come there. B)

VIZ Top Tip: All HPC neigh-sayers, who told GC and his kind they were idiots for buying PM's, can take comfort in the fact that their now worth-a-lot-less sterling will double as tissues, to wipe the tears of sorrow and regret from their reddened eyes.
