Inflation And Interest Rates

Recommended Posts



"On balance, however, the MPC remains nervous about the outlook for inflation. It is forecasting quite strong GDP growth over the next couple of years, based on steady increases in consumer spending, buoyant business investment, and a boost to exports from a continuing recovery in the euro area. The labour market may be loose but spare capacity within business is “relatively limited”. Furthermore, Mr King remains worried about the current growth rate of money and credit, saying that “it is high, it is a concern.”

"Against this background, it is hardly surprising that the Inflation Report struck a hawkish note. The bank is worried that people are starting to expect higher inflation. It wants to nail those expectations back down to the 2.0% target."
