Indian Economy Growth: Global Economy Analysis: India’s growth lags Saudi Arabia’s this year

(Bloomberg) — Inflation continues to rattle the global economy, forcing monetary authorities to redouble their efforts to quell it.

Consumer prices in the United States rose more than expected last month, which will likely prompt the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates by 75 basis points for a third consecutive meeting next week.

UK inflation remained near its highest level in four decades and the economy barely grew as industrial production and construction weakened. In Argentina, inflation rose the most in three decades and prompted the central bank to raise its benchmark rate to 75% in a bid to prop up its currency.

Here are some of the charts that appeared on Bloomberg this week on the latest developments in the global economy:



Consumer prices in the United States rallied last month, dashing hopes of an incipient slowdown and likely securing another historically large interest rate hike from the Fed. Against a backdrop of robust labor market conditions that have pushed up wages, there is a good chance that the central bank will become all the more aggressive in further loosening the veils of the economy in a bid to lower the inflation.
