The spectre of stagflation: real or imagined?

Read about global markets and trends in the November edition of Investment Outlook.

This monthly commentary gives a round-up of global markets and trends.

In this edition:

  • Surging energy prices have contributed to inflationary pressures at a time when economic growth momentum may be weakening.
  • This has led to concerns over potential stagflation, where inflation pushes prices up faster than wages and profits, forcing consumers and businesses to cut back on expenditure.
  • Previous episodes of stagflation have been difficult for stock markets, with companies struggling to grow earnings.
  • Stagflation remains only an outside possibility. Strong economic growth is allowing firms to pass on higher input costs to consumers without denting demand.
