The global economic crisis has kept domestically generated inflation pressures at moderate levels in advanced economies in recent years. As a consequence of the crisis, abundant spare production capacity has been available and domestic demand has been slow to regain momentum. By contrast, in many emerging economies, inflation has picked up markedly since 2009, as these economies suffered from the crisis considerably less and have recovered quickly. Due to the substantial rise in the weight of emerging economies in the world economy during the last decade, these countries also have a significant impact on global inflation. This article aims to outline the magnitude, channels and longer-term trends of this impact.
