    Poland: Inflation & MM rate

    The contraction in consumer prices has continued since the start of 2015, and amounted to 0.9% in April. Low commodity prices, are the main reason for the deflation, which has averaged 1.1% since the start of the year. Poland moved into deflation in August 2014. The NBP left its key rate unchanged at 1.5% at this stage, reckoning that the real interest rate is hardly punitive, with growth as vigorous as ever.

  • Edition June 30, 2015 Contributions of household consumption to growth

    In most countries, consumption is the leading growth factor in our 2015-16 scenario. Its contribution to GDP growth is generally higher than its proportion of GDP. This is especially the case in the US, where consumption is forecast to provide 90% of the additional growth in 2015 and 2016 (and even over 100% in 2015). Even in recession-hit Brazil, the resilience of household consumption is cushioning the drop in activity.

  • Edition June 2, 2015 Andean countries: GDP growth

    Growth has slowed sharply – in Chile and Peru to 1.8% and 2.4% respectively in 2014, compared with 4.3% and 5.8% in 2013, and in Colombia, where it again came out at 4.6% in 2014, but is forecast to fall to 3.3% in 2015. The negative impact is mainly being passed on through the public finances. Oil revenues account for 27% of the total in Ecuador and 18% in Colombia.

    In Barcelona, Ada Colau, head of a leftist coalition backed by Podemos and a former leader of a movement against house evictions, might become the next mayor. The incumbent centre-right separatists of Convergencia I Unio (CiU, led by the regional president Artur Mas) got only 22.7% of votes and 10 seats, performing poorly compared to previous 2011 elections when it obtained 27.7% of votes and 15 seats.

  • Edition April 29, 2015 Eurozone: flattening of the yield curve

    The drop in interest rates thereafter took place gradually. It spread logically as the search for yields became more intense. Starting from short-term maturities on the yield curve of core countries, it spread to longer-term maturities. This led to a fall in interest rates and a flattening of the yield curve.
