IMF: Global headline inflation has peaked.

The headline inflation rate in the Group of 20 countries seems to be at its peak.

According to

The International Monetary Fund. In most G20 countries and particularly in the advanced economies, the core inflation rate remains above the central bank's target.

In the fight against the inflation, there are early signs that monetary policy is affecting activity. Bank lending standards have tightened in the Euro area and the United States. However, policymakers must avoid "premature celebrations": previous inflationary episodes have shown that easing the policy too soon can reverse progress made on inflation. This was written by IMF managing director Kristalina G. Georgieva in a note published Friday.

The IMF predicts that global growth will fall to around 3% over the medium term, lower than its historical average of 3,8% from 2000 to 2019.
