The CPI in India in November 2021 was close to 5%, while the core inflation was above 6% and WPI above 14%. Not only in India, but globally inflation is high. In the US, it is above 6%, well above their target of 2%. So, inflation is back globally for the first time in decades, but this time it could be different. What should central banks, particularly those in emerging market economies, do?
The fog of uncertainty that has engulfed us over the last two years lingers on. It is difficult, indeed risky, to peer through that shroud and hazard a guess about how the future might shape up. But one thing is for sure; it will be different from what it was in the past. This is particularly true if we try to think about the economic future of Asian countries.
