The search for missing inflation
For fifty years, the obsession for combating inflation has dominated OECD economies. Today, inflation has virtually disappeared; central banks are struggling to increase it towards their 2% target. There are multiple causes and they are often linked: globalisation, technological innovations, weakening influence of trade unions, lacklustre global demand, weak inflation expectations… The spectre of “Japanisation” now hovers over the developed economies.
