Are US inflation pressures building? 30/10/2014
There are good reasons to be concerned about deflation risks in the global economy. The Eurozone and Japan have significant output gaps (the gap between the potential growth rate of an economy and the actual growth rate) and chronically high unemployment rates, which are suppressing demand. Meanwhile, weak commodity prices, including both oil and food, and the strength of the US dollar (and sterling) are keeping price pressures low. 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.
