Will European Central Bank’s pivot to rate hikes to confront inflation shock create bond crisis for currency bloc? “The ECB is in great difficulty,” says Charles Goodhart, a former Bank of England policy maker. “They can’t normalize very rapidly — loading increases in interest rates up front — without dealing with the fragmentation issue.”

US may avoid a formal recession, “but underlying growth is likely to weaken significantly on the back of a jump in interest rates,” predicts ABN Amro analyst Bill Diviney, senior US economist at the bank. “This is likely to raise the unemployment rate by 1.5pp by the end of 2023, helping to cool inflation.”
