Inflation pushes ECB towards raising rates

By Allister Heath
30 July 2006
THE European Central Bank (ECB) is set to lift rates by 0.25 points to 3% this week to fight inflationary pressures, polls of economists revealed this weekend. In the UK, the Institute of Economic Affairs’ shadow monetary policy committee voted five to four to hike interest rates by 0.25 points,
but the Bank of England is expected to ignore the pressure and keep rates on hold at 4.5% for another month.

IR hike here and the HPC get a nitros oxide injection as it approaches the cliff. Gordon: "no way Jose."
