This monthly webcast (upgraded from a quarterly to a monthly webcast) provides the latest insights from TCB’s Economics Team on the growth performance of major emerging markets, especially the outlook for China, India, Brazil and Mexico as well as Southeast Asia.
The special focus of this webcast will be on the inflation outlook for the emerging markets, as well as concerns of asset price and credit bubbles in some of the key emerging economies. During the last several years, the emerging markets have experienced the highest rates of money growth as well as the highest rates of inflation in the world, with a majority of emerging countries’ inflation rates now at three to five times the current U.S. inflation rate. In the last six years following the global financial crisis, cheaply available and massive supply of credit has fueled asset price booms even bubbles in major emerging economies. With normalization of the U.S. interest rate and slower economic growth across most of the emerging world, what will likely happen to inflation and asset prices in these countries? If asset prices are to decline (which is already happening in some of the emerging economies) rapidly, how will it impact those economies?
