Drop-In: Oil prices and the threat to the global inflation outlook

In this special briefing, our Commodities team explained how the oil market’s supply-demand dynamics are likely to evolve – and the implications for prices – while our Global team walked clients through the inflation and policy implications for developed and emerging economies. The team addressed key issues, including:

  • The 2024 price outlook;
  • How much of a risk higher prices pose to the inflation outlook.
