US: U.S. inflationary pressures should ease in 2022 due to weaker demand for goods, easing supply bottlenecks and a receding coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. Treasury’s top economist said on Monday.
In a statement released alongside the Treasury’s quarterly borrowing estimates, Assistant Secretary for Economic Policy Ben Harris said he expects energy prices to stabilize in 2022, but geopolitical instability could push prices higher.
Harris said the course of the pandemic remains a primary downside risk to the U.S. economic outlook, along with supply chain disruptions, high energy prices and housing costs.
Future coronavirus variants “may have worse symptoms or fatality rates or may be fully resistant to current vaccines and present a significant risk to the economic outlook. On the other hand, given the level of vaccinations and prior infection, the U.S. population may be nearing herd immunity.”
He also said that the pandemic continues to endanger the recovery of supply chains due to continued lockdowns in China and southeast Asia, which could keep goods prices elevated.
Eurozone: German annual inflation slowed in January but was still higher than expected by analysts and well above the European Central Bank’s price stability target of 2% for the euro zone as a whole, preliminary data showed on Monday.
Consumer prices, harmonised to make them comparable with inflation data from other European Union countries (HICP), rose 5.1% year on year compared with 5.7% in December, the Federal Statistics Office said.
The national consumer price index (CPI) rose by 4.9% on an annual basis, easing from 5.3% in December. A Reuters poll of analysts had forecast the CPI rate at 4.3% and the HICP figure at 4.7%.
At the same time, supply bottlenecks and high energy prices significantly reduced the expected positive effect, analysts said. As surveys of German and foreign companies have so far shown no significant easing of supply chain disruption, the year-on-year CPI rates are likely to stay above 4.5% for a few more months, said Michael Heise, chief economist at HQ Trust.
