January 2011 Euro area annual inflation up to 2.3%, EU27 stable at 2.7%

Euro area annual inflation was 2.3% in January 2011, up from 2.2% in December 2010. A year earlier the rate was 0.9%. Monthly inflation was -0.7% in January 2011.

EU annual inflation was 2.7% in January 2011, unchanged compared to December 2010. A year earlier the rate was 1.7%. Monthly inflation was -0.4% in January 2011.

With this data for January 2011, a new methodology for the treatment of seasonal products is being used in the calculation of the HICP.

These figures come from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

Eurostat: Euro area annual inflation up to 2.2% in December 2010, EU up to 2.6%

Rising fuel prices helped push annual eurozone inflation up to 2.2% in December, from 1.9% in November, according to official figures. Consumer prices in countries using the euro climbed 0.6% on a monthly basis, Eurostat added. The data comes one day after the head of the European Central Bank (ECB) warned the region was threatened by rising prices. The ECB has a target of 2% for eurozone inflation. A year ago it stood at 0.9%. More expensive fuel has a particular impact on the cost of transport and of food production and delivery.

Ben S. Bernanke - Monetary Policy Objectives and Tools in a Low-Inflation Environment - full speech 15 October 2010

The topic of this conference--the formulation and conduct of monetary policy in a low-inflation environment--is timely indeed. From the late 1960s until a decade or so ago, bringing inflation under control was viewed as the greatest challenge facing central banks around the world. Through the application of improved policy frameworks, involving both greater transparency and increased independence from short-term political influences, as well as through continued focus and persistence, central banks have largely achieved that goal. In turn, the progress against inflation increased the stability and predictability of the economic environment and thus contributed significantly to improvements in economic performance, not least in many emerging market nations that in previous eras had suffered bouts of very high inflation. Moreover, success greatly enhanced the credibility of central banks’ commitment to price stability, and that credibility further supported stability and confidence. Retaining that credibility is of utmost importance.

Eurostat: August 2010 - Euro area annual inflation down to 1.6%, EU down to 2.0%

EU annual inflation was 2.0% in August 2010, down from 2.1% in July. A year earlier the rate was 0.6%. Monthly inflation was 0.2% in August 2010. These figures come from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

Interest rates 'may hit 8pc' in two years

Andrew Lilico, chief economist at the influential Policy Exchange think tank, has warned of an interest rate environment not seen since the 1990s. He said the rise could happen as the recovery beds in and Government measures to stave off a recession lead to an explosion in the money supply. Mr Lilico also warned of a return to "boom and bust", as ballooning inflation threatens to tip the economy back in to recession in 2013 or 2014.

Bank of England Inflation Report August 2010

The recovery continued in the United Kingdom, with output growth across the first half of 2010 close to its historical average. But the level of economic activity remained well below its pre-crisis peak. The revival in the world economy also proceeded, albeit unevenly. The UK recovery is likely to continue, underpinned by the considerable monetary stimulus, further growth in global demand and the past depreciation of sterling. But the risks to growth remain weighted to the downside. Spare capacity is likely to persist over the forecast period, although its extent will depend on the strength of demand and the evolution of supply, both of which are uncertain.

Trichet to Keep Liquidity Flush, ECB Stays Silent on Bonds

The European Central Bank promised extra cash on Thursday to keep euro zone liquidity flush until the end of the year but stayed resolutely silent on the details of its controversial government bond buying program.

ECB: inflation to stay around 1% in the near term keeping interest rate low

Over the last few months, since our (Hearing at the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee of the European Parliament) meeting in December 2009, the euro area economy as a whole has continued to gradually recover. But there are a number of issues, related to country and financial market developments, which have led to an intense discussion about the euro area and its functioning. This makes today’s discussion all the more timely.
