    China: Consumer price index

    China's consumer price index rose by 0.8% y/y, compared with 1.5% the previous month, - its lowest level since November 2009. In parallel, food and producer prices rose 1.1% and fell by 4.3% respectively. The increase in food prices should be compared with the 2.9% increase in December and producer prices with a drop of 3.3%. In both cases, at any rate, these figures are the lowest for at least five years. Elsewhere, exports fell by 3.3% y/y last month, whereas they had risen by 9.7% in December. And imports fell by 19.9%, after a drop of 2.4% in the previous month.

  • Edition February 6, 2015 Labour market slack is rapidly diminishing

    The ILO unemployment rate fell to 5.8% in the three months to November compared with the previous (non-overlapping) three months, once again surprising favourably relative to consensus expectations. There is a non-negligible chance that the MPC's estimate of slack in the labour market will be revised to the downside (to below 1% of GDP, relative to "broadly in the region of 1% of GDP").
