The future of interest rates and inflation in the eurozone

We look beyond the pandemic to discuss where eurozone inflation and interest rates are heading over the next decades. The bloc’s real neutral interest rate has been on a consistent downward trend since 1980 and our analysis shows that it will remain negative for our entire forecast to 2050. This goes hand-in-hand with a weakness of eurozone aggregate demand which will depress inflation. We quantify and explain how nine secular forces are behind this, both historically and in our forecast.

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

  • APAC – Wednesday 1st December | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Wednesday 1st December | 10:00 GMT
  • Americas – Wednesday 1st December | 16:00 EST
