Inflation is on everyone’s mind these days. It has prompted the US Federal Reserve to change its view on when to draw back from its ultra-loose monetary policy stance. It is also making the RBI look hard at the data to justify its support for growth by keeping interest rates unchanged. While central banks may have preferred to let the growth party run for some more time to sustain the momentum, rising inflation is forcing them to reconsider their positions.
One of the party spoilers may be China itself is the conclusion of this piece in today’s edition. China has cemented itself as an exporter of choice because of its ability to provide low-cost products at scale. From being accused of exporting deflation to the world, it’s now being viewed as a possible driver of inflation. Data since May 2017 shows that US import prices from China were in deflationary territory since 2017, but have been rising since last year and have risen very sharply over the past three months. What explains this and will this sustain is a question you may ask. Do read to know the answers.
