World Bank on Inflation Watch in Asia

World Bank President Robert Zoellick is wary of heightened inflation risks in Asia as stimulus programs, easy monetary policies, and asset flows into commodities drive recoveries across the region:

“…in Asia the massive liquidity flowing into regional markets could push asset prices up dangerously high, Zoellick told a business forum on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum. ‘In this region some care must be taken because as we get recoveries … we could see inflation or some flow into commodities markets or certain asset price markets,’ Zoellick said.”
