Spain Inflation Rises, Boosting
The Case for Higher Rates
May 31, 2006
Spanish inflation accelerated in May as strong demand in the euro zone’s fourth-largest economy helped buoy the European Central Bank’s case for tighter monetary policy.
While sharper price trends might be expected given the torrid pace of Spain’s economic expansion, they also point to further losses of market share for exporters and thus cast a shadow over growth prospects. Inflation rose at an annual rate of 4.1% in May, faster than April’s 3.9% rate, according to a preliminary estimate from INE, the national statistics institute. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires expected a 4% pace.
