Eurozone Key themes 2024 – Fragile recovery will gain impulse

with Tomas Dvorak | Online | December 7, 2023

After grinding to a halt in 2023, we expect the cogs of the eurozone economy to start slowly turning again in 2024, gaining more momentum as the year goes on. Our key call is for faster disinflation, which together with a weak growth outlook will prompt the ECB to normalise policy earlier and more forcefully than what the markets are expecting. This should in turn help to usher in stronger consumption growth. But there are potential headwinds aplenty – looming fiscal consolidations, possible supply shocks or hysteresis effects holding activity back.

French elections: a leap into the unknown

with Leo Barincou and Angel Talavera | Online | October 12, 2023

Despite a comfortable win in the first round, we think tactical voting against the far-right Rassemblement National (RN) will lead to a hung parliament in the second round of the French elections. This would result in policy paralysis, delaying fiscal consolidation and preventing any meaningful reforms until the next election.

Are African countries’ fiscal efforts strong enough to restore debt sustainability?

with Irmgard Erasmus and Pieter Scribante | Online | August 29, 2023

May’s downside surprise for inflation caused markets to rein in their expectations for the future path for Bank Rate. But we’re not out of the woods yet, with our recent research highlighting why the second round effects of higher energy prices are likely to prove more persistent than the initial direct and indirect impact. In this webinar we react to the August MPC meeting and assess the outlook for inflation and interest rates.
