Will central banks raise interest in face of high energy prices?
  • The global economy may narrowly avoid falling into recession thanks to resilient emerging markets. But aggressive monetary policy tightening, limited fiscal support and the raging energy crisis will drag most advanced economies into a downturn.
  • Europe and especially Germany are at the eye of the storm with energy-intensive industrial sectors facing a severe recession and a deeply uncertain longer-term outlook due to the likely lasting shift in gas prices. But easing supply bottlenecks and sky-high backlogs will dampen manufacturers’ overall production cuts.
  • Central bank decisions are exclusively driven by inflation for now. But that singular focus will be much harder to sustain, once economies are in recession and signs of inflation peaks are proliferating. We see a dovish pivot latest by Q1 2023.
