Drop-In: 2022’s Food Price Supply Shock – Market Outlook/Macro Impact
This year’s dramatic surge in food prices presents a formidable challenge to both central banks and to governments. The war in Ukraine may be the proximate cause of the leg-up in prices, but other forces look set to dog the agriculturals market, complicating the task of policymakers.
In this special 20-minute briefing, economists from our Commodities, Global and Emerging Markets services will discuss our forecasts for prices and the implications for economies and policy. Our team will be answering your questions as they address key issues, including:
- The factors that will keep food prices historically high;
- Food prices, global inflation and the policy response;
- The particular vulnerability of EMs to higher food prices.
