Macro Notes: Is Lower EM Inflation Here to Stay?

  • Inflation is trending down in many emerging markets.
  • This is partially due to higher central bank credibility.
  • EM inflation has also become increasingly synchronized.
  • Persistently lower inflation could allow for more easing.
  • Risk of reversals and country-specific shocks remains high.
