In this note, we update out view on inflation and monetary policy in emerging markets. Rising inflation, even if partially transitory, has forced the hand of EM central banks. We expect inflationary pressures in many countries to peak in the next six months. Slowing growth, favorable base effects, and lower commodity prices will be the drivers. However, rate hikes were also prompted by expansionary fiscal policy in some cases. Furthermore, tightening global liquidity in 2022 may add pressure on central banks.
