SA Quarterly Economic Report: 1st Quarter 2014
by Jason Mattes
Market Summary
The economy is not expected to have performed well during the first quarter of 2014, marking a slow start to the year. Growth during the first quarter will definitely be weak and much slower than the 3.8% rate of the last quarter of 2013. Economic indicators that have so far being released paint a picture of an economy at or near "stagflation" – slow growth, high inflation and high levels of unemployment. The rate of increase in both consumer price inflation and producer price inflation rose in every succeeding month of the first quarter. The year-on-year rate of increase in consumer price inflation quickened from 5.8% in January to 5.9% in February and finally to 6% in March, ending the quarter just within the Reserve Bank’s inflation targeting range of between 3% and 6%.
