Following two years of double-digit growth, headline inflation is finally receding. Nominal wages have not kept pace everywhere, leading to workers’ real wage loss and possible wage catch up in the making. But with unemployment at historical lows, there is a risk that too much wage growth could add to core inflation persistence. Together with structural changes, including older and declining labor forces and changing labor demand from new technologies and green jobs, this could constrain growth more broadly. This seminar will discuss the drivers of wage growth, the shifts taking place in labor markets, and to which extent these trends could herald persistent inflation and weaker growth.


We look forward to continuing our engagement with you!
