“Since August, we have had a lot of news that has influenced higher short-term inflation in energy prices, an effect that should fade quickly.”

“The Effects of supply chain disruption must also be temporary, but the speed of rotation back to normal is a key uncertainty. “

“The balance of recent economic news is unlikely to have much of an effect on the amount of adjustment required in the next few years.”

“The pressures on internal costs will depend on the evolution of the labor market now that the work leave plan has ended.”

“My political votes will aim to strike a balance between these different effects and risks.”
