These disinflationary forces are impacting real economic activity and reducing confidence. Inflation globally has remained absent throughout 2014, and that may well persist in the near term. However, looking at the US in isolation, in our view there is evidence of inflationary pressures emerging that suggest over the medium term that the direction of travel for US inflation is higher, not lower, from current levels.
