Charting the Global Economy: Inflation Maintains Firm Hold

Around the world, a rebound in economic demand and strained supply lines have continued to add to inflationary pressures.

In Europe, fresh data shows companies are passing along higher costs to consumers. The activities of US service providers have come to a boil as firms struggle to fill open positions and ensure sufficient inventories are in stock.

Some central banks in emerging markets, such as Mexico, are raising interest rates in the face of high inflation. Housing prices are also rising in many advanced economies.

Here are some of the charts that appeared on Businesshala this week on the latest developments in the global economy:

                         World.

House prices in the richest countries could rise by about 10% after a decade-long boom that is one of the strongest since 1900. British research firm Oxford Economics identified the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, Germany and France as the property markets with the highest risk, based on its findings on long-term trends and price-to-rent ratios.

A measure of activity in service providers fell back to a five-month low in July, reflecting businesses’ continued struggle to fill positions and stock shelves. At the same time, the IHS Markit US Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index reached a new record.

The number of container ships waiting to enter the biggest gateway for US trade with Asia rose to a 3 1/2-month high, raising hopes for a solid economy in the second half of the year. But there was a delay in trying to restore the inventory.

                         Europe.

Companies across Europe are raising prices to cope with rising cost pressures, supply-chain disruptions and delivery delays. A survey by IHS Markit shows that in July manufacturers’ costs rose at the fastest pace since at least 1997, while selling prices also jumped.

The scorching heat is driving up electricity prices across Europe, adding to a long list of factors driving the cost of electricity this summer. At a time when the world is emerging from a global pandemic, extreme temperatures are driving the demand for cooling.

                         Asia.

While Japan’s key consumer prices rose for a second month in June, helped by higher energy costs, the pace of gains is still far from the levels fueling inflation fears elsewhere in the world.

The devastating floods in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou are raising concerns about a possible rise in inflation. While there may be some upward pressure, any impact will be mild and unlikely to last beyond the near term, write Businesshala Economics’ Eric Zhu and Chang Shu.

                         Emerging markets.

South Africa’s central bank softened its stance on raising borrowing costs this year as the country grapples with deadly riots and a third wave of coronavirus infections.

Mexico’s annual inflation unexpectedly accelerated in early July, putting pressure on policymakers to continue raising interest rates after a surprise hike last month left the central bank’s board divided.
