Interest rate levels of different central banks along with inflation
Below given table showing the interest rate levels of different central banks along with inflation no for latest period same for the previous month.
- Except for South Korea, all of these countries have higher inflation than India. The question is when the RBI will take the plunge and raise the repo rate.
- Because the omicron strain’s path is unknown, growth will always be a risk for the entire global economy. It may not be possible to ignore inflation as temporary or driven by supply-side forces for much longer.
- The central bank will have to make a decision here because, while CPI inflation is within tolerance, WPI inflation offers a different tale that is difficult to ignore. Currently, we can expect the RBI to tighten in stages: first, addressing liquidity, then boosting the reverse repo rate, and eventually, raising the repo rate.
