Macro Insights Livestream
A world beset with low growth and high debt burdens could do with a healthy dose of inflation. The thrust of G3 monetary policy over the past dozen years has been to mitigate deflationary risks. After pricing in a resurgence in such risks in March, markets have responded favourably to the seismic easing measures put in place since then. So, could some inflation be around the corner? Additionally, if the USD continues to weaken, it may cause inflation expectations to rise somewhat (although the cause and effect are not particularly clear at a time of weak demand). It could also add upward pressure on US interest rates eventually. This would add some degree of competitiveness to US exporters (again, not a given in present circumstances). Finally, a weaker dollar will drive a wide range of mitigating dynamics in the non-USD world.
