The Mastercard Economics Institute expects inflation to moderate in 2024

Inflationary pressures are expected to ease in 2024 as global inflation eases to 4.9% year-on-year from 6.0% in 2023. Report Shown by Mastercard Economic Institute.

“Most countries are coming out of the most disorienting kind of economy that we’ve been stuck in for a while,” where you had big swings in inflation, interest rates, etc. [and] Migration flows into some economies,” MEI’s David Mann told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia.”

“We’re still finishing that leg of the bungee jump” following the Covid-19 pandemic, he added, and expects quieter inflation and slightly higher wage growth next year — which should lead to real wage growth.

The MEI noted in their report that the global economy will be “more normal” in 2024, but consumer spending is likely to remain cautious.

Mann also highlighted that only about 55% of international travel has been recovered. But entering 2024, countries such as China and Japan have the potential to see more growth in outbound travel as China reopens and tourists take advantage of the weaker yen, he explained.
