The Week Ahead: Comings and goings

Last week, Statistics Canada released its daily tourism data for May, covering arrivals at major airports. The data continued to show a rapid rebound, and anyone who has been through an airport recently will know that demand appears to be recovering faster than supply. However, what’s also becoming clear is that the recovery in Canadians going abroad has moved well ahead of visitors coming into the country (Chart).

Economic Insights - Long run inflation: Can we do two?

There’s little doubt that major central banks are fully engaged in an effort to bring inflation back down to earth. Monetary tightening will push up interest rates in the months ahead, and given intensified price pressures, we’ve moved all of the rate hikes into 2022 and added to our peak targets in the US and Canada (Tables 3 and 4, page 6) from where we stood a month ago. That will likely include 75 basis point hikes by both the Bank of Canada and the US Fed at their next rate setting dates.

The strangest recession you ever did see

Ian and Andrew start the episode by discussing Friday’s data deluge, particularly the red-hot inflation reading in the United States. Andrew talks about the implications for Canada based on the drivers of U.S. CPI strength, noting that both the near-term peak and the end-of-year resting spot have now increased. The duo spend a lot of time talking about the options for the Bank of Canada, and introduce CIBC’s new forecasts for the target rate, which is higher as a result of the data. Ian talks about why CAD rates have been underperforming of late, and why he likes being long cross-market now. Andrew finishes the episode by looking at the odd type of recession he believes could transpire if rates are risen too high.
