Eurozone economy ready to take off

After a long period of restrictions which sent the eurozone economy into a double-dip recession, the outlook is finally brightening and activity looks ready to take off. An improved medical situation and the acceleration in the vaccination process will allow European economies to reopen, leading to a strong period of growth for the remainder of the year. As the economy recovers, inflation concerns are gradually replacing growth concerns, but we still expect eurozone inflation to remain moderate beyond the temporary rise in prices seen this year.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between the Americas, APAC and EMEA:

  • APAC – Tuesday 22nd June| 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Tuesday 22nd June | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Tuesday 22nd June | 16:00 EDT

Inflation to fall further as ‘wartime characteristics’ fade

We show how the outburst of inflation in 2021-2023 can be traced in large part to ‘wartime’-style fiscal and monetary policies and pandemic-related distortions to labour and product markets. We also outline how these sources of inflationary pressure are now receding, which points to inflation rates in the G7 continuing to fall to 2% or lower this year and next.

How the forecast may change after election day

During the next presidential term, the economy will receive a net boost from federal policymaking, and inflation will come in stronger, leading to a more cautious easing cycle by the Federal Reserve. This is the takeaway no matter the president and the political balance of power in Congress. In this webinar we will to take stock of the economy's performance across our six scenarios – two each for Trump, divided government, and the two most recent simulations for Biden.
