Show Abstract /
A resumption of employment growth is now reinforcing increases in domestic demand and, barring adverse shocks, the hitherto sluggish recovery should accelerate. Increases in food and fuel prices have pushed inflation above the target range, but there is still much spare capacity and, as temporary influences wane, inflation is projected to fall back into the target range by end-2012.
