Chief Europe Economist Andrew Kenningham and colleagues from the Europe team were online shortly after the May HICP release to talk through the latest inflation numbers and their implications for policy. During this 20-minute online session, Andrew and the team took client questions as they addressed key issues, including:
- What May HICP suggested about the euro-zone inflation outlook;
- Whether the ECB will stay focused on inflation in the face of weakening growth;
- What this all means for euro-zone financial markets.
