Europe has experienced disinflation
Inflation in Europe was below what was anticipated, at 0.7%, down from the 2.2% of a year prior. Low inflation can either be supply-driven or demand-driven. Supply-driven simply means the costs of production are falling which can lead to more output and employment. Demand-driven is bearish, and it states low incomes are forcing producers to reduce prices or it can be said like, raise prices at a slower pace in order to clear inventory. This leads to less income, and thus unemployment. Based on the high levels of unemployment in many European countries, it’s evident that the low inflation in the Euro zone is demand-driven.
