Key themes for Latin America in 2022: stagflation risk will test central banks

Ipad Frame - Latin-America-Key-themes-2022-stagflation-risk-will-test-central-banks

Latin America’s economy enters the new year on a weakened footing. Our 2022 themes revolve around the inherent struggle between supporting a slowing economy versus reining in uncomfortably high inflation. And with central banks not following the same rulebook, the chances of policy mistakes are high.

What you will learn:

  • We expect Latin American fiscal and monetary policies will tighten significantly in 2022.
  • The mishandling of inflation remains a key threat to the outlook.
  • While all central banks look certain to miss their inflation targets this year and next, some are giving as much weight to growth as to inflation in their decisions.
